There it goes.
I have a form that has an input field named "query". I type "piraña" an submit the form using
the GET method.
I can see the browser has encoded this parameter into the URI as query=pira%C3%B1a
I set a breakpoint into the filter so when the request hits the filter I can see getCharacterEncoding()
returns null. The filters sets it to "UTF-8".
Then the request gets to the controller where I can see the request parameter "query" is set
to "piraña". 
The controller tries to perform a text search using that query but, obviously, it doesn't
return any results. I can manually modify it while debugging and set it to "piraña", so the
controller returns several results.
BTW. I'm running Tomcat 6.0.13 on Sun JDK 1.6.0_06

Kind regards.

Could you give an example of such a UTF-8 encoded URI ?
(and tell us what it should be decoded to)
