The "FAQ/CharacterEncoding" page has been changed by KonstantinKolinko:
https://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/FAQ/CharacterEncoding?action=diff&rev1=22&rev2=23

Comment:
Note that Tomcat 8 has different default for URIEncoding.

  
  <<Anchor(Q2)>>'''How do I change how GET parameters are interpreted?'''
  
- Tomcat will use ISO-8859-1 as the default character encoding of the entire URL, including
the query string ("GET parameters").
+ Tomcat will use ISO-8859-1 as the default character encoding of the entire URL, including
the query string ("GET parameters") (though see Tomcat 8 notice below).
  
  There are two ways to specify how GET parameters are interpreted:
  
   1. Set the `URIEncoding` attribute on the <Connector> element in server.xml to something
specific (e.g. `URIEncoding="UTF-8"`).
   1. Set the `useBodyEncodingForURI` attribute on the <Connector> element in server.xml
to `true`. This will cause the Connector to use the request body's encoding for GET parameters.

+ In Tomcat 8 starting with 8.0.0 (8.0.0-RC3, to be specific), the default value of `URIEncoding`
attribute on the <Connector> element depends on "strict servlet compliance" setting.
The default value (strict compliance is off) of `URIEncoding` is now `UTF-8`. If "strict servlet
compliance" is enabled, the default value is `ISO-8859-1`.
