Subject RE: Problem displaying accents in Tomcat
Date Fri, 13 Jun 2003 11:35:25 GMT
This is really one for tomcat-user, but seeing as it's quiet...

I assume you HAD Apache (HTTP Server) and Tomcat hooked up with mod_jk
(or similar) previously and NOW you've just got Tomcat (4.1.24) on its

Given that this is the case then something else has changed and is
causing this problem. What character encoding are you using in you web
app? Is it the same server machine that WAS working with Apache HTTP
Server and Tomcat? What OS are you running?

Subject: Problem displaying accents in Tomcat

Hi everyone,

I have a problem with tomcat 4.1.24 with displaying vowels with accents 
and special spanish characters such as &ntilde;.

The scenario is the following :

    - I have deployed a servlet application that accesses data on a 
MySQL database. The problem is that when displaying characters with 
accents or &ntilde; they all appear as a question mark. But the fact is 
that they are correctly saved on the database, so the problem is not 
with the JDBC.
    - I am using Tomcat as a Stand-alone so, is acting as web server

    - The fact is that the same application has been running on Apache 
(Apache-tomcat) with no problem on displaying any character, but now I 
need it to be running directly on Tomcat as a web server.

    Any idea on what can be the problem, I am a bit desperate with this,

I've been trying to find the solution for a long time now

            Thanks very much in advance
