Error description

    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    Malformed characters should be ignored with System property

    For the following double byte charsets, the malformed characters
    were not ignored and appear as '?' in the output string while
    doing byte to char conversion.

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • The failing charsets did not throw MalformedInputException while
    detecting the malformed byte streams and hence the
    IgnoreMalformedInput request was not processed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    5.0.0 SR15
    .
    
    The JDK has been updated to throw the MalformedInputException
    while detecting malformed byte streams and thereby correctly
    process the IgnoreMalformedInput request.
    
    Implementing the fix to all DBCS codepages has a side effect.
    Hence, restricted the fix to MS936A. Other codepages will be
    considered on a case by case basis.
    

Temporary fix
