Subject [jira] [Created] (WW-4352) xslt result and utf-8 characters
Date Sun, 25 May 2014 16:36:01 GMT
Arturo Flores created WW-4352:
---------------------------------

             Summary: xslt result and utf-8 characters
                 Key: WW-4352
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WW-4352
             Project: Struts 2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Core Actions, Other
    Affects Versions: 2.3.16
         Environment: windows 7
            Reporter: Arturo Flores


copied from email in mailing list:

I have the following in my struts.xml

<action name="testutf8" class="TestXml">
  <result name="success" type="xslt">
    <param name="exposedValue">utf8</param>
    <param name="location">testxml.xsl</param>
  </result>
</action>

My testxml.xsl file looks like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="xml" />
<xsl:template match="result">
<xsl:copy-of select="." />
</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

My TestXML.java file looks has the following
public Class TestXml {
  private String utf8="hèllo world"; // a string with utf-8 character, getters+setters omitted
here
 
  public String execute throws Exception {
    return "success";
  }
}

When I request /testutf8 I get the following in the browser:
XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: http://localhost:8080/testutf8
Line Number 1, Column 48:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><result>h�llo
world</result>
-----------------------------------------------^

It seems the utf-8 character is not being handled properly.  How can I make the xslt result
type handle the utf-8 character correctly?  

Upon further investigation, the response type header is only "text/xml", it is missing character
encoding.  

A workaround is to register a custom filter which forces utf-8 character encoding on the output,
but ideally this should be handled within struts.

Let me know if more information is needed.
