Problems with double-byte languages and jar files

1 reply [Last post]

We are having a problem displaying double-byte languages in the JavaHelp
browser when invoked from our application. The application itself and the
navigation side of the JavaHelp browser are fine. Only the content pane
displays boxes and garbage. Once I remove the Jar files and replace them
with loose files, the double-byte languages display correctly.

Going through the hsviewer both sets of files are fine. The hsviewer is
able to display the double-byte languages just fine when the files are
stored in Jar files.

Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem could be?

Thank you!

Certainly sounds like a setup issue with the application though one
would think that it would fail on both jar and non jarred environment.
Setup seems to be logical since it does work in the hsviewer.

Maybe Igor will have an idea. I'll send him the message and see if he
has any better idea of the problem.
