Affects Version/s: 2.1.x
Fix Version/s: 2.0
Environment:Oracle12c and HSQLDB 2.3.4, JDK 1.8
A long-withstanding bug in the DataSourceResourceLoader corrupts UTF-8 templates retrieved from the database. The Unit Test suite for this resource loader has deficiencies that hide the bug.
The cause of the problem is this:
Once done, the test failure vanishes:
org.junit.ComparisonFailure: Unicode test failed.
Expected :The Euro Currency Symbol € is a two-byte UTF-8 encoded character.
Actual :The Euro Currency Symbol ? is a two-byte UTF-8 encoded character.
The bug was verified and the fix was tested against Oracle12c and HSQLDB 2.3.4 using a CLOB column to store the template data.
The Unit Tests for this resource loader need attention.
VELOCITY-599 ; long standing problem, which has been erroneously marked as resolved but has been in the codebase for a long time.
