Subject [jira] Issue Comment Edited: (DERBY-4999) Docs build fails under C locale
Date Thu, 03 Feb 2011 11:46:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4999?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12990065#comment-12990065

--------------------------------------------------------------------

The problem seems to be caused by the copy and move ant tasks that take a filterset or a filterchain.
If no encoding is specified in the build script, ant assumes the files are encoded using the
platform's default encoding when it does the filtering. This causes the UTF-8 BOMs to be garbled
when the files are copied in a non-UTF-8 locale.

See http://ant.apache.org/manual/Tasks/copy.html#encoding for a description of the problem.

The attached patch specifies UTF-8 encoding for the copy and move tasks that do filtering,
which makes it build again in my environment.

As a side effect, this also seems to fix the garbling of non-ascii characters that we saw
even before the build started failing. So now I'm able to build the Japanese manuals in the
C locale and get output that looks Japanese to me (the question marks are gone).

> The Hudson job that builds the documentation sometimes fails. See these threads on derby-dev:

> The failure happens when processing the Brazilian Portuguese translation of the reference
manual.
> I'm able to reproduce the failure by building the pt_BR.html ant target with locale set
to C. It builds fine if the locale is en_US.UTF-8.
