You have to define what you mean by the term "default encoding". There
are different terms in different contexts.

The I/O default encoding (the one that is used to write the log files,
etc.) is determined by your OS user configuration.

The servlet response default encoding is ISO-8859-1.
The information in the FAQ is correct, so follow the FAQ.


Regarding the random 8-years old discussion thread,

Jasper indeed uses UTF-8 to write java source files for JSP pages and
to call Java compiler on them (that is what javaEncoding option in
"jasper-howto.html" is about), but it is an internal detail that is
not visible from the outside.
