Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-1114) Bad encoding used in text editor for binary data
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2016 21:59:21 GMT


Stefan Seelmann commented on DIRSTUDIO-1114:


You are right, the default system encoding was used to convert the binary data to string.
I choosed to always use UTF-8 instead of checking the workspace setting because the edited
data is not loaded from local filesystem but from remote LDAP server, and in general LDAP
uses UTF-8.

>          Components: studio-ldapbrowser
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-M10 (2.0.0.v20151221-M10)
>         Environment: Windows 7 x64
>            Reporter: Nagy Attila
>            Priority: Minor
>             Fix For: 2.0.0-M12
> On windows when an octet string ("Binary Data" as displayed by Directory Studio) is being
edited as text (double click on attribute then click "Edit as Text..." in the opened hex editor)
wrong encoding/code page is used and there is no way to set the encoding to the one that should
be used.
> The Text Editor that is opened uses most likely CP1250 no matter what the string is encoded
in. So an UTF-8 string is mostly uneditable.
> I assume the editor uses the default system encoding.
> I think this because on Linux the text is displayed/edited correctly, and nowadays Linux's
use UTF-8 as default (albeit that would create the same artifacts if the strings were stored
with some other encoding like eg. Windows-1252).
> The correct behavior for the Text Editor windows would be to honor the global Eclipse
workspace setting regarding the encoding of text files.
> As about the concrete circumstances to reproduce the error:
> I was editing a vacationInfo attribute (OID: type: binary)
