Subject Catalina 4.0.2 - Tomcat 3.2.3 Incompatibility // character encoding
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2002 16:43:56 GMT

I've just upgraded an application to TC4.0.2. We have problems with the
strings that come in the server from web pages. We use ISO-8859-2.

With 3.2.3 it was working all right, we only had to
use -Dfile.encoding=ISO8859_2 with windows and "export LANG=hu_HU" with
Linux. Now we have switched to JDK1.4.0 and Tomcat4.0.2 at the same time.

Now if the user enters characters that are not ISO8859_1 they are
transformed to "?" (so request.getParameter("name") returns a bad value.

Obviously the system is not running with ISO8859_2 enabled...

Any hints?
