Error description

  • Abstract:
    
    Attempts to specify the Shift_JIS encoding for a property group
    in the web deployment descriptor fails as it is not a supported
    encoding in the deployment descriptor editor.
    
    Problem:
    
    To recreate, perform the following:
    
    1) create a dynamic web project and open the web.xml with the
    deployment descriptor editor.
    2) Select Add JSP configuration ? Add Property Group ? Page
    Encodings.
    
    Only 4 types of page encoding (ISO-8859-1, UTF-8, UTF-16,
    Unicode) are listed and it is not possible to add others, for
    example, Shift_JIS.
    
    If the XML source of the deployment descriptor is modified to
    add this encoding then the following error occurs:
    
    'Page Encoding : The value is not among the possible
    selections'.
    
    Local fix:
    
    There is no known workaround at this time.
