Subject [jira] [Created] (HTTPCORE-431) Correct character encoding default for application/json
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2016 10:17:20 GMT
Paul Draper created HTTPCORE-431:

             Summary: Correct character encoding default for application/json
                 Key: HTTPCORE-431
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-431
             Project: HttpComponents HttpCore
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: HttpCore
            Reporter: Paul Draper
            Priority: Minor

RFC 4627 and RFC 7159 require that parsers auto-detect the encoding of application/json. UTF-8
is the suggested default, though it's possible to detect the encoding of valid JSON unambiguously.

Currently, EntityUtils.toString defaults to ISO-8859-1 (the default for text formats without
a charset parameter).

Given how common application/json is, it would be great for EntityUtils.toString to use the
correct encoding.
