Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-4508) ij on slavic machine does not create files with appropriate encoding
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2010 22:44:54 GMT
ij on slavic machine does not create files with appropriate encoding

                 Key: DERBY-4508
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4508
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Tools
    Affects Versions:
         Environment: PC (windows Server 2007) with codepage Cp852 (console.encoding is Cp852)
            Reporter: Myrna van Lunteren

On a machine configured with slavic codeset Cp852 ij does not always create (or access) files
with appropriate characters.

For instance, consider the following string with non-ascii characters: Českýnázev

When starting ij using only defaults: java org.apache.derby.tools.ij (or using one of the
ij scripts from bin) and issueing the following connect statement:
   ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:Českýnázev;create=true';
ij creates a database that on the OS shows like so: ¬eskěn zev

When I have a file - e.g. simple.sql - that does this connect, the file created on the OS
has the expected name (Českýnázev).

Using a simple program that does the same as org.apache.derby.iapi.tools.i18n.LocalizedInput
(only 1 method, main), with appropriate  imports):
    public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
        InputStreamReader isr = new InputStreamReader(System.in);
        BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(isr);
        String inputString = in.readLine();
        System.out.println("inputString: " + inputString);
        File f = new File(inputString);
        System.out.println("created a file called " + inputString);
Sun's jdk 1.6 gives the following output:
inputString: Českýnázev
created a file called Českýnázev
While IBM's jdk 1.6 does this:
inputString: ¬eskěn zev
created a file called ¬eskěn zev
However in both cases the file created on the OS (dos prompt, looks like the way ij created
the database dir:
¬eskěn zev

If we specify -Dfile.encoding=Cp852, or -Dderby.ui.codeset=pl when starting ij, the file created
has the expected name, so this is a workaround.
