Local fix

Problem summary

  • The replacement character for SHIFT_JIS converter is incorrect.
    The problem occurred because the APAR IV53873 changed the
    replacement character of JIS0208 converter from '0x3f' to
    '0x21,0x29' as JIS0208 is DBCS only converter. As SHIFT_JIS is a
    mixed converter, the replacement character should be '0x3f'.
    

Problem conclusion

  • JDK is updated to return the correct replacement character
    (0x3f) for SHIFT_JIS converter.
    .
    This APAR will be fixed in the following Java Releases:
       7 R1 SR4 FP15  (7.1.4.15)
