Can you give an example of the request?  Are the non-ascii characters in
the URL or in the payload of your request (or both)?

Not necessary with Tomcat 8.  The default for URIEncoding is "UTF-8".
 Unless you have set the system
property org.apache.catalina.STRICT_SERVLET_COMPLIANCE=true.  That will
override the URIEncoding and set it to "ISO-8859-1".

I have set charset in the request to UTF-8. How can I solve 400 Bad

You seem certain that the 400 error is due to the encoding.  Perhaps it's
something else?  What have you done to troubleshoot this?  Have you tried
stepping through things with a debugger?
