Subject [jira] [Commented] (HTTPCORE-431) Correct character encoding default for application/json
Date Sun, 04 Sep 2016 13:01:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HTTPCORE-431?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15462895#comment-15462895

Oleg Kalnichevski commented on HTTPCORE-431:
--------------------------------------------

bq. 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.

@Paul: 

Would that fix the immediate problem for you?

> 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.
