it always comes down to what the servlet specification says a container 
implementation should do, what developers expect container implementations to 
do and how they should behave, and what developers often get confused about.

character encoding seems to be one of those things that many developers are 
getting confused about, and this issue in particular seems to come about quite 
often. i suppose as far as a developer is concerned whatever data they send to 
the server should be maintained in that way. so if arabic is sent via a post 
running on tomcat, is it acceptable for the developer to have to understand 
that tomcat runs in a charset that is not universal and to have to seek a 
filter or write their own filter to change this?

personally, i believe encoding falls into the same kind of category as other 
configuration elements like databases, jndi environment vars.

imo the container should help out the developer with this type of 
functionality, if not by configuration, then by providing default configurable 
filters across web applications. 

just my opinion.
