Subject UTF8
Date Sat, 22 Sep 2007 16:36:08 GMT
hi ,
i'm using tomcat 5.5 and jdk5 allso using commons.fileupload , when 
uploading a XML that contains hebrew fonts i can't seem to get it in utf8 in 
the servlet tough JSP is configured to utf8 with :
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=UTF-8" 
pageEncoding="UTF-8" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" 

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

i suspect that i might be getting in utf 8 but maybe it differs from java's 
UTF8 (that's impossible isn't it ?) because when i try to convert using new 
String(stringByte,"UTF-8") it returns the same while with other encodings in 
can see in debug content changes ... i'm realy at a jam here people i have a 
deadline adn i can't seem to fix this silly bug any ideas ?

when i open the xml with firefox and check properties it says windows-1255 
but when i try using the getbytes method to init stringByte it doesn't 
matter , i had this problem once with tomcat but it was with a simple 
textarea input and then i just converted to utf8 like i described above from 
iso-8859-1 but now i can't seem to do that ..
