      Description

      Due to various character encoding complexities such as the system is configured to receive UTF-16 and but receives UTF-8 streams etc.. following exception throws by the httpcore library[0].

      At this point the connection will be dropped. But upon receiving this kind of errors we can recover if we configure CharsetEncoder/CharsetDecoder with a CodingErrorAction [1] where the action can be report (default), ignore and resume or replace and resume the coding logic. I think this choice should be a configuration option in SessionInputBufferImpl/SessionOutputBufferImpl constructors.

      A possible patch will follow.
