Subject charset for querystring decoding
Date Fri, 23 Feb 2007 18:22:58 GMT

as far as i remember, tomcat always uses a default-charset for decoding
the querystring. A call to request.setCharacterEncoding() only matters
for decoding POST-data.

Somewhere, this charset can be changed - for example to UTF-8.

Where can it be changed?
And if you know: what's the reason, that the charset is not configurable
via request.setCharacterEncoding() ?
