Subject One more time: UTIUtil.toUsingCharset
Date Tue, 04 Feb 2003 09:33:36 GMT
Hi Sung-Gu
Please take no offense in my posts. I have never questioned sanity of URIUtil.encodeWithinQuery,
however, I still have doubts about sanity of UTIUtil.toUsingCharset method. And the fact that
you have been ignoring my and Odi's requests to provide a unit test for that method does not
really help

One more time I'll try to present my point

Transformation in URIUtil.encodeWithinQuery does make perfect sense
                ISO-8859-1           URLencode
Unicode string -----------> byte[] ------------> Unicode string
Transformation in URIUtil.toUsingCharset does make any sense to me
                ISO-8859-1           UTF-8 (or any other encoding)
Unicode string -----------> byte[] ------------> Unicode string

I can well accept that I am not bright enough to get it, but I am trying. Maybe that kind
of transformation has its purpose when dealing with Asian alphabets, but for European alphabets
(including Cyrillic based) its absolutely useless. 

So, please help me to see the light by providing a test unit
