Post subject: How to use encodings other than UTF-8 with Matisse?  PostPosted: Aug 26, 2011 - 04:25 PM

I have to make some forms with non-English characters. I can manually edit the encoding field in the .form file to something like "Cp1252". That lets me use non-English characters on the form, but when I edit the form it resets the encoding to "UTF-8". I don't see any way to tell Matisse to stop doing that.

How do I make Matisse use the "Cp1252" encoding for its .form file?

ehodges,

Sorry that you are seeing this issue with MyEclipse.

Can you answer some more questions for me to understand the issue better ?

1) Can you share your Build Id from Help > MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench > Build Id ? Paste the Build Id here.

2) The default encoding standard for Matisse is "Cp1252".How are you editing the encoding field ? Can you give us detail steps for me to be able to replicate it at my end ?

The build ID: Build id: 8.6.1-20101117

To edit a form, I right click on the .form file in the Package Explorer and Open With "MyEclipse Matisse Form editor".

More info:

When I create a new form, the encoding field in the .form file is "UTF-8", like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

With that encoding, if I use non-UTF8 characters in the labels, I get an exception when I open the Matisse editor:

com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.impl.io.MalformedByteSequenceException: Invalid byte 2 of 3-byte UTF-8 sequence.

I can manually edit that encoding to "Cp1252" (by opening the form in text edit mode) so it looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Cp1252" ?>

That let's me edit the form with the Matisse editor, but when I save it it converts the encoding back to UTF-8 and replaces the Cp1252 characters with Numeric Character References like "&#xe9;".

ehodges,

I could replicate the issue at my end. I have raised a PR for the dev team to work on it.
Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
