CA Application Test


If the project name or the directory contains Chinese characters, the project can be opened from DevTest Workstation in Windows OS. However, vsm/vsi files in the Chinese name project cannot be deployed to VSE which is running in the AIX server. The vse.log includes the error message like:
2018-05-31 03:57:29,544Z (23:57) [ServerRequestResponder 1] ERROR com.itko.lisa.coordinator.CoordinatorImpl - Failed to stage MAR
java.nio.file.InvalidPathException: Malformed input or input contains unmappable characters: /lisatmp_10.2.4/lads/BC8AAC93648611E88F450011257E5DB2/[Chinese Project Name]/Data
 at sun.nio.fs.UnixPath.encode(
 at sun.nio.fs.UnixPath.(
 at sun.nio.fs.UnixFileSystem.getPath(
 at java.nio.file.Paths.get(
When using the old LISA 7.5.2, this type of problem did not occur.


Release: DevTest supported environments

DevTest Workstation is in Windows OS

Other DevTest components are in AIX


This could be JDK problem not the product problem.


Adding these two lines

in $LISA_HOME/bin/*.vmoptions files for DevTest components which are needed to run the AIX server solved the problem.
