Subject RE: Issue in sending Request/response http headers containing Japanese charateres
Date Wed, 18 Mar 2009 13:32:01 GMT
Hey Mark,

Thanks for your response... I have tried to isolate the issue if it is being caused by Apache/Mod_jk/Tomcat.
Firstly I tried a request to standlone apache with customize d header having Japanese characters.
The requested page displays the headers in the request. To my surprise Apache is not dealing
with Japanese characters correctly and replacing them with some junk value. For example I
addedミが完たソ税一使饅漢社氏ソ圧user1 in the request header and wht I received
was ~‚ªŠ®‚½ƒ\ÅˆêŽgé\Š¿ŽÐŽ¿ˆ³user1.

Also to add the same thing works when make request to apache configured to reverse proxy.
Can any one provide explanation to that?
