Error description

  • Japanese characters are not imported correctly when you import
    RIF package using IBM Rational DOORS. This problem happens in
    both RIF and ReqIF formats).
    
    Behavior observed:
    -----------------------
    RIF 1.2 format
    Object heading - Japanese characters are displayed correctly
    Object text - Japanese characters are corrupted
    
    ReqIF 1.0 format
    Object heading - shows RTF format
    Object text - Japanese characters are corrupted
    
    Work around:
    ----------------
    This behavior is not seen in DOORS 9.4.0.1 Client. Hence, we can
    use Rational DOORS 9.4.0.1 to import the RIF or ReqIF files.

    ****************************************************************
    ASCII characters with a value greater than 128 were not
    formatted correctly (returned as plain text not RTF). So
    this had an impact on unicode characters (e.g. Japanese).
    

Problem conclusion

  • In the code set hasFormatting to "true" if the RTF encoding
    of a character is used.
