That is true. What strikes me as weird though is that the following piece of CL 
code I inherited (with file.encoding for whatever reason specified as 1253, not 
Cp1253) worked fine on V5R1 w/ JRE 1.2.2.

    RUNJVA CLASS(<classname goes here>) 
        PROP((os400.stderr 'file:/JAVAAPPS/SRVCLASS_ErrorLog.doc') 
        (os400.stdio.convert 6) 
        (file.encoding 1253) 
        (os400.stdout 'file:/JAVAAPPS/SRVCLASS_Console.doc')))

  "1253" isn't a valid encoding, it's a CCSID. The encoding that corresponds to

We could distinguish between two types of files here: 

- The files that standard output and standard error are redirected to 

- The log files to which we write directly (via Java I/O) from the application 

When we specify -Dfile.encoding=1253 on the java command then neither a log 
file gets created nor do the stdout and stderr get written to their respective 
When we do not pass a -Dfile.encoding flag to the java command at all, or when 
we use -Dfile.encoding=ISO8859_7, both types of files get written to.
