Subject RE: Problem displaying accents in Tomcat
Date Fri, 13 Jun 2003 12:31:47 GMT
There are two issues with character encoding. 

Firstly the charset used by Jasper for jsp source files, this is set in
Tomcat web.xml. The default is UTF-8 and will effect jsp source files
with special characters. From what I gather this isn't the problem, and
only really causes a problem with far-eastern charsets or where the OS
does not support UTF-8. 

The second is the HTTP Content Type. If you don't set this in a
jsp/servlet your text including unicode characters fetched from the db
will not be displayed properly ie using non-unicode ascii charset.

If you aren't setting the ContentType, you will need to either with a
tag:

<%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" %>

or code:

<%
  response.setContentType("text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1");
%>

Why it worked before withou setting the content type I don't know, but I
hope that setting the content type as above solves your problem.

Yes, your asumptsion is right. I had apache before hooked to Tomcat. Now
the application is running with Tomcat 4.1.24 on its own. The OS is
linux, SUSE distro. The character encoding it should be the default one
I haven't specified 
any. So it should be (iso-8859-1) ?

    Thanks
