Subject RE: UTF-8 Encoding in Jsp | RESOLVED
Date Thu, 02 Dec 2004 14:02:37 GMT
Hi all,

First of all thanks to all the people who helped in the first place (I
am grateful). The problem was resolved and was due to some problem with
the home grown framework we were using with the application.

Tomcat had nothing to do with the problem and content type is the only
thing required to make it work. As far as the database persistence was
concerned, oracle did no mistake in storing the data but when our
framework was persisting the values, it somehow corrupted the data
somewhere in the middle of submitting the page with non-english
characters and writing to the database.

We found this problem by simply writing a simple jsp page without using
the framework and rendered some non-english characters successfully.

Thanks again,

Thanks for the reply but it did not work. May be I didn't explain the
problem correctly.

I am running an application that supports all the languages but only in
some specific places of the application and I have made those places
UTF-8 complaint.

Further, they are being saved to Database (Oracle 9). When we are
reading the data back from the database, junk characters are displayed
on the screen. Yes, the database is set to support UTF-8 Encoding and
this is working with the old version of tomcat 3.3 and not with current
upgraded version of tomcat 5.0

There are also places in the application where drop downs contain some
different language support and we can see those charsets (Japanese,
Chinese etc) appearing. Only, when I try to display on the screen
through the jsp file, I am encountering this problem of junk characters
begin displayed.

Hope I have set more context around the problem. Please help me resolve
this issue.

You should use too:

	<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;

and this scriptlet:


at the beginning.

I hope this help you

Asunto: UTF-8 Encoding in Jsp

Hi all,

I need to make my all jsp files compatible with UTF-8 Encoding and even
though I am using the directives:

<%@ page pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>
<%@ page contentType = "text/html;charset=UTF-8"%>

in the jsp files, cannot make it work.

Using tomcat version 5. Is there any config changes I need to make for
the UTF-8 Encoding to work.

Please help.

Thanks in advance,
