How to set the encoding used to interpret POST requests

+ == How to set the encoding used to interpret POST requests? ==
+ POST requests should specify the encoding of the parameters and values they send. Since
many clients fail to set an explicit encoding, the defaults are used - ISO 8859-1. In many
cases this is not the preferred interpretation so one should employ a javax.servlet.Filter
to set request encodings. Writing such a filter is trivial. Furthermore Tomcat already comes
with such an example filter. Please take a look at:
+  4.x:: {{{webapps/examples/WEB-INF/classes/filters/}}}
+  5.x:: {{{webapps/servlets-examples/WEB-INF/classes/filters/
+ webapps/jsp-examples/WEB-INF/classes/filters/}}}
+  6.x:: {{{webapps/examples/WEB-INF/classes/filters/}}}
+ The interpretation of paramers in GET requests is determined by the URIEncoding parameter
to the Connector element in server.xml configuration file.
