    * USERS AFFECTED:  IBM WebSphere Application Server V7.0,      *
    *                  V8.0, and V8.5.5 users                      *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: NumberFormatException returns to        *
    *                      administrative console if server is     *
    *                      running with "-Dfile.encoding=Cp943".   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:  Install a fix pack containing this APAR.    *
    ****************************************************************
    File I/O operations for an internal workspace file do not set
    the encording correctly. If a server is running with
    "-Dfile.encoding=Cp943", the workspace file I/O operation
    coould end up use a wrong encoding, which leads to a
    java.lang.NumberFormatException.
    

Problem conclusion

  • We set the proper encoding for the file I/O operations of the
    internal workspace file to prevents NumberFormatException from
    being thrown.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 7.0.0.35, 8.0.0.10, and 8.5.5.4.  Please refer to
