Some IBM EBCDIC machines need converters for codepage 1047.
Two new converters "src/share/sun/sun/io/CharToByteCp1047.java" and
"src/share/sun/sun/io/ByteToCharCp1047.java" are included. I
suspect that the file "src/share/sun/sun/io/CharacterEncoding.java" ought to
be updated too, although the IBM developers who needed the new codepage have
not done this.
I've attached CharToByteCp1047.java.gz and ByteToCharCp1047.java.gz
to this bug report.
We're planning to address this RFE by introducing a character converter SPI (RFE 4287465), which allows IBM to provide converters for all their encodings as an extension.
IBM NIO pluggable converters targeted for J2SE 1.5. In the interim a Cp1047
converter sun.io.* has been added since this is such a requested/desired
