Hi all.

We are using a Git repository to store our powerbuilder sources and a Teamcity server to build a setup from it.
Now, when I commit changes to Git from inside Powerbuilder, this commit contains an "encoding UTF - 8".
And that's a problem for Teamcity. When such a commit is the last one done, it always encounters an "IllegalCharsetNameException" error:

[08:32:50]Collecting changes in 1 VCS root
[08:32:50]Failed to collect changes, error: Error collecting changes for VCS repository '"https://gitlabconject.planon-fm.com/conjectFM/Client.git#refs/heads/master" {instance id=19, parent internal id=2, parent id=Client_Http1040469conjectFMClientGitRefsHeadsMaster, description: "https://gitlabconject.planon-fm.com/conjectFM/Client.git#refs/heads/master"}' Collecting changes failed: java.nio.charset.IllegalCharsetNameException: UTF - 8
[08:32:50]Failed to collect changes, error: Error collecting changes for VCS repository '"https://gitlabconject.planon-fm.com/conjectFM/Client.git#refs/heads/master" {instance id=19, parent internal id=2, parent id=Client_Http1040469conjectFMClientGitRefsHeadsMaster, description: "https://gitlabconject.planon-fm.com/conjectFM/Client.git#refs/heads/master"}' Collecting changes failed: java.nio.charset.IllegalCharsetNameException: UTF - 8
[08:32:50]Build finished

You see that encoding in the list of commits. In the screenshot below the third last is such a commit done with powerbuilder:

When I do the git commit not from inside Powerbuilder but with others tools (e.g. Sourcetree or TortoiseGit), as you can see the last and second last commit, there is no such "encoding UTF - 8" written to the commit and Teamcity has no problems with it.

Does anyone know, why Powerbuilder writes "UTF - 8" to the commit?
Shouldn't it be "UTF-8" correctly, if any?
How can I prevent this by changing settings in Powerbuilder?

Thanks for any hints.

Rolf

Hi Tom/Rolf,

I am in the process of trying to switch from using PushOK to native PB GIT but am having this same Team City build issue. 

I am finding though that once I have any commit in my branch with the UTF - 8 bit in it, my build fails regardless of whether it is the last commit.

So I don't really have a workaround for the issue, other than doing all of my commits outside of PB or continuing to use PushOK (please no!!).

I notice from the bug that has been raised (Bug 2478) that this is officially fixed in 2019, however, we are currently using 2017 R3 and will not be upgrading to 2019 for at least 6 months to a year (company policy).

So I have also downloaded the fixed 2017 R3 DLL from the bug and this appears to fix the problem.

Am I able to use this DLL in production and is it supported by Appeon?

If not, will there be an MR release for 2017 R3 that includes this fix?

Thanks
Gordon

Hi Tom

It's this:

git log --all --pretty=raw

Hi Rolf,

What is the command you use to get the output? I tried git log but don't see the "UTF - 8" anywhere.

Regards,
