NIO and UTF-8 Exception

Whilst using NIO to read a small text file, I have come across an exception with the following message : input length = 1


When the program is run through Netbeans 7.4 on java 7 update 51 there is no exception.

It only appears when the program is run on the standalone JRE same version as above.

I have searched the internet and not been able to find a solution.


I am using charset UTF-8

You should change the code on line 43.

But seriously, posting your code would help.


The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.

The code runs as intended when run through the JRE provided with NetBeans. Java 7 Update 51
It throws exception when run on standalone JRE same version as above.
I have the exact same method instead using IO and it does not throw any exception.

And can we have the stack trace as well?

I was able to find the solution which consists of a minor change to the charset.

The method now runs as intended through NetBeans or through standalone JRE.

Thank you for your attention in this matter Roel De Nijs.
