Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCORE-431) Correct character encoding default for application/json
Date Fri, 02 Sep 2016 11:28:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-431?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15458269#comment-15458269

ASF GitHub Bot commented on HTTPCORE-431:

Github user hirthwork commented on the issue:

    1. This code makes no distinction between BE and LE encodings described in [rfc4627](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4627#section-3).
    2. [rfc7159](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7159#section-8.1) explicitly forbids byte
order marks, while this patch depends on BOMs.
    IMHO, workarounds for improper servers should not be injected in core functionality. Probably,
separate function like EntityUtils.safeJsonToString(...) should be introduced, so anybody
using this function will be informed than slight performance penalty will apply.

> 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
> 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.
