Local fix

Problem summary

  • The problem reported is SSB 4486841 fix which is implemented
    only in NIO converter side by Sun.
    Under this SSB Sun have masked various UTF8 illegal sequences.
    Basically Sun fixed this Sun Security Bulletin in NIO side only,
    as by default for Sun NIO converters will be used for string
    conversions.
    For IBM, IO converters will be used for string conversions.
    Under this Sun Security Bulletin basically Sun have masked
    illegal UTF8 byte sequences. So, we need to fix the same thing
    in IO converter side too.
