Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-156) InputStreamReader.getEncoding() and OutputStreamWriter.getEncoding() should return a historical charset name.
Date Fri, 03 Mar 2006 05:42:03 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-156?page=comments#action_12368656 ] 

Paulex Yang commented on HARMONY-156:
-------------------------------------

All the spec about Charset historical name is:
" Some charsets have an historical name that is defined for compatibility with previous versions
of the Java platform. A charset's historical name is either its canonical name or one of its
aliases."

>From this paragraph, I personally think the historical name is specific to RI without
any public standard:(,  so the only way to be compatible with RI is write testcases to get
all historical names of RI supported Charsets, and store them in an map.

I can provide the patch of tests(to get all historical name) and the mapping implementation,
but before that, I hope I can get some better idea from the mailing list to avoid this ugly
solution:-\.

> InputStreamReader.getEncoding() and OutputStreamWriter.getEncoding() return canonical
names on the given charsets instead of historical ones. For example,
>     new OutputStreamWriter(new ByteArrayOutputStream(), "UTF-16BE").getEncoding()
> has to return the "UnicodeBigUnmarked" string as a historical name. But it returns "UTF-16BE",
that is a canonical name.
> The java spec reads the historical names as the charset names defined for compatibility
with previous versions of the Java platform.
