Subject Cactus and HttpClient encoding issue
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2003 12:37:46 GMT
Hi,

In Cactus land (which uses HttpClient), I have received a bug report for
supporting different encodings
(http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=17077). Up until now,
Cactus was using the default platform encoding for reading data from
streams. However, the bug reporter (Neal) who is developing on z/OS told
me that all the HttpClient code is using a "hardcoded" encoding of ASCII
(I guess 8859-1).

I now need to modify Cactus so that Cactus plays ball with HttpClient. I
have 2 questions:

1/ Is it possible in HttpClient for the user to choose which encoding to
use?
2/ Is there a HttpClient API I can query from Cactus to know which
encoding is being used by HttpClient?

Thanks
-Vincent
