Subject Help with filter affecting Chinese words in request parameters
Date Mon, 10 Apr 2006 03:14:32 GMT

I'm new to this list, hope someone here can help. :)

We're developing a webapp that should be able to accept Chinese input. We
also have a filter installed in the webapp for some auditing that we need to
do per request that's processed. However, we've found that when we submit a
form with Chinese inputs, the Chinese chars end up saved to the database as
HTML-escaped entities. (i.e. &#32610; or such).

So we backtrace, and we find that removing the filter from web.xml fixes the
problem. We debug through the doFilter() method of our filter, but we find
that at the start of the method, request.getParameter("PARAM_NAME") already
shows the input as HTML-escaped entities.

The weird thing is, this doesn't happen on all our Tomcat
installations...each of our developers has a local Tomcat running, and it
only happens for one or two. But it also happens on our Test (QA) server,
such that our testing team always encounters the problem.

Is there any particular language or encoding setting that I should be

Thanks a lot :D
