#424 closed defect (fixed)

Description (last modified by Nicklas Nordborg)

When the FlatFileParser? reads files it uses the system default encoding. On my Linux machine the default is UTF-8 and on Windows the default is cp1252. This causes problems since files doesn't have to use any of these encodings but cp1252 or ISO-8859-1 is more likely than UTF-8. The first step towards solving this problem is to add a configuration option in the base.config file for the encoding to use. The second step is to make it possible to select an encoding on a per-file basis. See ticket #425.

(In [2878]) Fixes #424: Make encoding used by FlatFileParser? a configurable option

Added support in AbstractFlatFileImporter? for asking and using a character set as a parameter for the configuration and/or job. Added that parameter to existing import plugins.
