Subject [jira] Created: (RAT-81) MalformedInputException thrown when RAT tries reading file
Date Fri, 10 Dec 2010 03:45:00 GMT
MalformedInputException thrown when RAT tries reading file
----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: RAT-81
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RAT-81
             Project: RAT
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.6
         Environment: Linux (Ubuntu) on x86, running with "default" file encoding set to UTF-8
            Reporter: Marshall Schor
            Priority: Minor


To reproduce, set the platform default locale to something that indicates UTF-8 file encoding.
This causes code in (for example) org.apache.rat.document.impl.FileDocument which return FileReader
to set up RAT to use a reader which is using the platform default character encoding (in this
case UTF-8).

If the file being processed is not encoded in this , it is possible that the reader will read
some data which is "invalid" UTF-8 encodings, which causes the reader to throw a MalformedInputException
error.

One case we found:

The file being examined had invalid UTF-8 encodings.  First, Rat ran the BinaryGuesser - but
that returned false because it attempted to read the first 100 or so chars, and got a "MalformedInputException"
instead, so the try/catch block just ended up returning "false" (not binary).  Then the HeaderChecker
tried to read the file to check the header, and got this same exception - but this time, it
made RAT fail.

Here's the last part of the stack trace:

Work-around: mark these files for explicit exclusion.

Fix: change the binaryguesser to read the files in binary (not assuming any character coding)
and operate with that data.
