Subject AW: Special chars problem
Date Wed, 11 Feb 2004 07:59:14 GMT
After searching the archives, I found some stuff about the encoding in
cocoon. I tried changing the ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8 in the web.xml, but that
did not change the problem.
( I passed the
url, it still was in the wrong format 'A?'(String assuming Unicode instead
of UTF-8). I found a wiki page concerning encoding in cocoon at I fixed my
problem by applying a conversion to all parameters in my flow that may
contain an incoming url. This conversion is also stated in the wiki page:
value = new String(value.getBytes("ISO-8859-1"), "UTF-8");So whenever you're
using parameters and passing something that's UTF-8, do that conversion to
avoid problems concerning the special chars.Hope this helps others!:)Bye,
