  • XML [accents] ISO-8859-1 auto conv to UTF8 but ...

    Hi !
    I'm experiencing some problems using SSH Read/File Write
    Using Mirth
    Here is my channel def :
    incoming Data : XML
    Channel Source
    - SFTP Reader / File type : ASCII
    - Strip namespace from messages => unchecked
    - Encoding source : ISO-8859-1

    Destination :
    - Connector type : File Writer / File type : ASCII
    - Encoding source : ISO-8859-1

    Every message like this :
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    Is automatically converted into this without reencoding accents ... : :angry: :blink:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

    I've seen something on the forum in relation with the file that said to add this directive :
    (Maybe only for the LLP channels ... but how to fix it for all the system ...)
    Does it really works ? :dry:
    Is there a way to fix this ?

    I know that i'm not the only using accents ...

    That's really a big problem ... :-(

    Hi, Antaris.

    This could be perhaps a problem related to the SFTP reader. Please, could you confirm than the same hapends with a File Reader ?

    Please, could you post (as attachements) the source files you're having problems with ?

    The .properties is for older versions of Mirth. Has nothing to do with >1.5 versions.

      Hi albertosaez

      Yes, i can confirm it ... unfortunately
      For the attachment, i can't post it on the forum because it contains medical data.
      But, if you just use this little examples it does the same result.

      Do you have an idea of what's going on ? (Due to the Sax Parser ???)

      Maybe i have solved my problem by forcing the sender to give UTF-8 formated messages ; and only in this case, it "works" i've my got accented characters (with the same parameters that i give in the post :blink: )

      I think that there's still a bottleneck inside ... :S

      Doctor is it serious ?

      See you later !


      Again albertosaez thanks for your support. (very active on the forum ... i see)

        Hi Antaris,

        Just to clarify, do you have the same problem when using the File Reader?

          I've made some test.

          The SFTP plugin for 1.6.1 doesn't recognizes different encodings. But all my tests with normal file reader are OK. The problem only affect to FTP and SFTP readers.

          I've prepared a patch. You could give it a try. (Be sure than 'batch processing' is set to 'No')

          The bug is solved for 1.7.0 (22638 bytes)
