UTF-8 support in Crucible

According to the documentation the default charset in Crucible is UTF-8. But all our UTF-8 files we commit are not properly shown in the reviews (meaning, that all special characters - like "ä" for example - are shown as some cryptic signs). Same problem applies to Fisheye.

(We run the version 3.4.4 of Fisheye/Crucible)

Is there a setting to enable UTF-8?

The mentioned Repository setting in the documentation is not available on all our Mercurial repositories.

Hi Reto,

Could you try the following:

  1. Stop your FishEye instance
  2. Create an environment variable called JAVA_OPTS with a value of "-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8" without the quotes
  3. Start FishEye

Hi Jeff. Thanks a lot. Your answer worked! But because we start Fisheye using the service wrapper, I added the following line to the wrapper.conf file:

wrapper.java.additional.13=-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8

(Replace 13 with the next free number in your file.)
