error: IO exception sun.io.MalformedInputException

I'm trying to compile java program with IBM SDK 142 version in a RedHat 9.0 Linux. When I compile:
 error: IO exception sun.io.MalformedInputException.

The aplicattion runs well in W2000.

I think it's a conversion problem (Linux has UTF-8 encoding by default), but I'm not sure how to solve it.

Hi both,
Really, when I compile the compiler only shows the line below,
error: IO exception sun.io.MalformedInputException
There is no line.
I developed and compiled  program in W2000, and Red Hat 7 and runs correctly. When I transfer the program to Red Hat 9 fails.
Do you think it's problem of code?
I don't think so,

Read this document: http://simonraven.nuit.ca/src/java/runtimeguide.lnx.en.htm (search for sun.io.MalformedInputException)
it claims that "if your system locale is using a UTF-8 encoding, some SDK |tools might throw a sun.io.MalformedInputException."
and provides 2 solutions.

The problem was the value of LANG in our system LANG=es_ES@euro in the new system was LANG=es_ES.UTF-8, so seting this value to es_ES@euro there is no problem.

Which is basically chaning your system to not use UTF encoding (so the SDK tools above will work), no?
