REPORT #269 Details.

Project: Jasper
Category: Feature Requests
SubCategory: Enhancement
Class: feature
State: received
Priority: medium
Severity: non-critical
Confidence: public

   Operating System: Linux (Red Hat)

Synopsis: when processing JSP

A " UTF8" is thrown when 
generating the servlet for a JSP file when the Kaffe VM is used.
The "UTF8" encoding name is hardcoded in the Compiler class as
the encoding for the generated servlet source code file.

I believe the reason for using "UTF8" as opposed to "UTF-8" (note
the dash) is that this is the only name supported in JDK 1.1.

I suggest adding an init parameter to JspServlet for setting the
encoding name when "UTF8" doesn't work.
