What is "AGENT"?

1. You cannot use the same server.xml in Tomcat 6 and Tomcat 7. You
have to start from default server.xml and add changes as needed.

2. Migration guide:

3. There is character encodings page in the FAQ:

4. Maybe you can write a sample web application that demonstrates the issue?
Things may go wrong in many places. You have to isolate the step that
goes wrong.

Check that your pages are rendered with correct Content-Type (that
includes charset value). Check that URIEncoding is configured on
Connector and that both POST and GET responses work with French

It that is OK you can go deeper, e.g. to check that you can write and
read the data correctly with your database.

I do not remember any differences between Tomcat 6 and 7 that can
cause such an issue.
