Some IBM EBCDIC machines need converters for codepage 1047.
Two new converters "src/share/sun/sun/io/CharToByteCp1047.java" and
"src/share/sun/sun/io/ByteToCharCp1047.java" are included. I
suspect that the file "src/share/sun/sun/io/CharacterEncoding.java" ought to
be updated too, although the IBM developers who needed the new codepage have
not done this.
I've attached CharToByteCp1047.java.gz and ByteToCharCp1047.java.gz
to this bug report.

COMMIT TO FIX:
We're planning to address this RFE by introducing a character converter SPI (RFE 4287465), which allows IBM to provide converters for all their encodings as an extension.
IBM NIO pluggable converters targeted for J2SE 1.5. In the interim a Cp1047
converter sun.io.* has been added since this is such a requested/desired
