Local fix

Problem summary

  • With APAR IV77988, the path is processed with platform encoding
    instead of file encoding. The output became garbage as the
    EBCDIC characters are not converted to the ASCII for the
    Path.toUri method.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JDK has been updated to convert the EBCDIC characters to
    ASCII characters for Path.toUri method.
