I have an NIO server and wish to send messages containing german umlauts
such as �, �, �. This works fine on the local development machine but
on the internet server it throws an Excpetion:

java.nio.charset.MalformedInputException: Input length = 1
at java.nio.charset.CoderResult.throwException(Unknown Source)
at java.nio.charset.CharsetDecoder.decode(Unknown Source)

I am using 1.5.0_06 on the server and 1.5.0_07 locally. The server is
also stationed in germany.

I am using this to get an ascii decoder:

I also tried defaultCharset() but that didn't work either.
Anyone have an ideo what I need to check?
I agree. Here's the link:
