Description Ken Frank 2007-10-21 05:15:42 UTC
this was not happening a few weeks ago.

create desktop dbase app in the following situations:

if path to project dir has multibyte, whether its name of project
dir or dir above that  - then when run the java desktop dbase
app project, get these exceptions.

if path does not, then the desktop app runs ok.

In this case the dir with mbyte is the dir above the project dir,
thats why there is no mbyte path mentioned in the exception; in attached
exception is example of part of exception msg when there is mbyte in the project name/dir.

happens on solaris or windows

with pseudo localized in ja locale or in zh locale without
pseudo, for example

using utf8 or euc-jp project encoding

running with the java -jar command line in a terminal, same errors
(output does claim it builds)

am not using any dbase data that has mbyte in it, or in names of table or columns.

Comment 3 Ken Frank 2007-10-21 05:24:43 UTC
attachment named firstrun is about:

all desktop app db project, at least on solaris, seems to need to c
lean and rebuild as below before run since get this msg in output
window if try to run it first whether the project has mbyte in path to it or not.

I don't know if this is related to this issue; I think it happened on solaris in en locale also.
Comment 4 Jan Stola 2007-10-22 09:47:29 UTC
I am sorry, but I don't understand what you did exactly and what build you used. Please, provide build number and 
_exact_ steps to reproduce this issue. Don't forget to mention actual x expected behavior. Also, please, specify 
clearly whether this issue has anything to do with multibyte characters in path or not. Thank you in advance.
Comment 5 Ken Frank 2007-10-22 15:50:43 UTC
I think details were elaborated but will try again

1019 build
solaris sparc
pseudo localized nb in ja locale, though it happens with non pseudo localized in chinese locale
happens on windows also
happens whether project uses default proj encoding of utf-8 or if its changed to euc-jp for ja solaris, for
example (when project encoding is changed, a completely new project is used, not the same one)

1. create javadesktop db project that has multibyte in the path to it; in this case it was the netbeans project dir
but also happens if the project name itself has multibyte - both of these cases are legal and no problems using them  in
other project types
2. clean and build
3. run it

4. application does not run - instead the output window and log shows the exceptions in the first attachment.

5. create another desktop project with dbase but not using multibyte at all in any path to the project or in 
project name.

6. the app runs ok and as expected.

7. expected behavior is that the db application will run.

removing incomplete keywd since provided additional info below.
Comment 7 Jan Stola 2007-10-23 16:29:37 UTC
I am sorry, I am not able to reproduce this issue because of issue 48902. Any clues how I can workaround it?
Comment 8 Ken Frank 2007-10-23 16:41:50 UTC
48902 is  an old issue and is not valid anymore; we are able to use multibyte in project names or paths to
run projects now so that should not be blocking you from replicating this - what is your environment
and setup ?
Comment 9 Jan Stola 2007-10-25 13:17:05 UTC
Finally (after some struggle with Windows settings) I was able to overcome issue 48902 and reproduce this issue. 
Unfortunately it seems to be an issue of TopLink library. The same project works correctly when the directory is 
renamed not to contain multibyte characters. I tried to switch the persistence provider (used by the project) to 
Hibernate and it works correctly even with the multibyte characters in the name of directory. I don't know about any 
workaround for this issue => closing as WONTFIX.
