Subject [jira] [Commented] (MRESOURCES-171) ISO8859-1 properties files get changed into UTF-8 when filtered
Date Sun, 03 Jan 2016 11:25:39 GMT


Hervé Boutemy commented on MRESOURCES-171:

wow, if somebody uses this Control feature to change encoding of *.properties files, I thinks
he's doing something really confusing: while doing so, he should use another file extension
(like *.utf8properties, for example) to avoid confusion

IMHO, by default, Maven should consider *.properties files to be ISO-8859-1 since this is
the classical case, and support configuration if somebody requires another encoding on these
files (which he should re-think about...)

into UTF-8 in the jar.
