Description Tomas Zezula 2009-09-30 14:10:26 UTC
The j2seproject provides a runtime.encoding property but there no UI to set it, the runtime encoding should be a part of the "Run" panel of the J2SE project 
For more info about runtime encoding see issue #166597.

Hi Tomas,

It is possible to provide useful UI? Current encoding list for source encoding is not useful because we can not find a platform encoding quickly.

Regarding runtime encoding, it may be either source encoding or platform encoding. So I don't think it's good idea to provide a list of entire encodings.

Eclipse also provides source encoding. The option provides a selection of platform encoding and it's default. I think most users prefer the platform encoding by default.
