Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCORE-431) Correct character encoding default for application/json
Date Sat, 03 Sep 2016 19:27:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-431?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15461572#comment-15461572
] 

Paul Draper commented on HTTPCORE-431:
--------------------------------------

[~olegk], the Http Components project does include default encodings for common text formats.

When I issue a request using ContentType.APPLICATION_JSON, the entity is UTF-8 encoded.

But when a receive a response for the same MIME type, the entity is decoded with ISO-8859-1.

If content detection is out of scope, could we at least have application/json entities decoded
in UTF-8 by default? In fact, this was the original change I was going to recommend.

> 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.
