Subject [jira] [Commented] (JSPWIKI-396) UTF-8 characters in wiki pages incorrectly rendered if served by Weblogic
Date Sat, 12 Jan 2013 04:54:12 GMT


Glen Mazza commented on JSPWIKI-396:

Harry quote: "So Tomcat works fine, Geronimo does, Glassfish does, but WebLogic doesn't, what
could we possibly fix in JSPWiki?"

I agree that if it can run in multiple containers, the problem is with WebLogic then and not
us--but I believe Glassfish and Geronimo both embed Tomcat so it may be an issue that we're
incorrectly relying on Tomcat's behavior for something but not coding in a generic manner
that will work on all servlet containers.  Then again, WebLogic is not open source so we can't
be expected to have local copies of it for our own testing.

There may be nothing we can do about this, and I understand it is irritating keeping it open
for that reason, but doing so allows us to immediately close similar reports as a duplicate
of this one, as well as have other people accumulate responses about how *they* were able
to get WebLogic working with JSPWiki.  Ultimately, problems with major commercial servers
like WebLogic or Websphere we can't be expected to test as we don't have the licenses, but
we can keep the issue open, hoping users of those containers will see this matter and provide
their solutions.  For all we need is a commentor providing a solution and vouching that it
works, and if there's no response from the original reporter that he has tested it to confirm
it *doesn't* work, then this matter can be closed.

Nobody likes closing dead issues more than me (in two weeks, I closed about 110 of Roller's,
getting open issues down to 300) but this particular issue, because it involves such a major
commercial server, seems to be something worth keeping open.

> If the page is served by Weblogic Server, the umlaut is rendered with FFC3 and FFBC in
Boxes, both with Firefox and IE. Served by Geronimo, it's fine.
