Fix Version/s: None
Environment:OS: Z/OS 1.4
The current distribution does not work on Z/OS without modification.
The issue stems from the XML parser.
The plexus MXParser (org.codehaus.plexus.util.xml.pull.MXParser) does not handle xml encoding and different character sets properly.
Any xml files that are sent to the MXParser MUST be in the same character set as the operating system default.
Three files in the distribution META-INF/plexus/components.xml, org/apache/maven/project/pom-4.0.0.xml and org/codehaus/plexus/plexus-bootstrap.xml must be converted to EBCDIC in order for the ant tasks to function.
Also any poms must be in EBCDIC regardless of the xml encoding.
