JavaScript files with UTF-8 encoding [message #205778] Thu, 13 December 2007 20:17 Go to next message

I have Eclipse setup to use UTF-8 for text files (in the General ->
Workspace settings). However, it views all .js files as ISO-8859-1.

If I create a new text file, then check the properties from the Navigation
tab (right click on the file in Navigation and choose "Properties" from
the menu), in the "Text file encoding" frame it says "Default (inherited
from container: UTF-8)", which is what I would expect. However, if I then
change the extension of the file to .js and repeat the steps, the encoding
now say "Default (determined from content: ISO-8859-1)".

I can manually change it to UTF-8. When I try to apply this setting, I
get a warning that says, "UTF-8 conflicts with the encoding defined in the
content type (ISO-8859-1). Do you wish to set it anyways?" If I click
yes, it will properly treat the file as UTF-8.

Does anyone why Eclipse considers all .js files to be encoded as
ISO-8859-1?

I'm using Eclipse 3.2.2 on Windows XP.

You need to go to Preferences->Editor->Content-Type->Text->Javascript
and change the content type for *.js from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8.

In addition to that.

- Having specified a charset with a Context-Type forces this
charset on all an every File.
- Leaving the charset blank, makes the editor to adhere to
project-/container-settings

I need the eclipse does not force the encoding and use the defined project.
In earlier versions the "default encoding" field was empty, but the newest version is utf-8 and not have to leave blank. I had to create a configuration file with the parameters blank to get resolved. Sad

it seems a bug

in:
.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.runtime\.settings\org.eclipse.core.runtime.prefs
content:
content-types/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.jsSource/charset=
content-types/org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.jsonSource/charset=
