 Description  « Hide
output: windows-1252

We have two problems here:

1) If i pass the value "windows-1252" to Jaybird in the "charSet" property, it
throws an exception during connection, because it doesn´t know this charset name. It expects "cp1252" instead.

2) When i pass a unknown charset name to Jaybird, it throws a RuntimeError,
instead of a SQLException error, what makes it "uncatcheable" in most cases,
unless the code is catching RuntimeException's, what is not usual.

About problem 1, according to Mark (, Jaybird took Java charset names from Java 1.3, but there was a change in Java 1.4, wich changed some charset names and/or aliases. So it would be nice to have the new names/aliases mapped.

Scheduled for 2.3, if it is easy to do I will also include it in 2.2.1

Commited change to trunk to address both this and JDBC-268. I do think it needs a little bit more polish before it can go to Jaybird 2.2.1 as well.
