I had the exact same problem when running inside the JRUN server.  The
problem with JRUN is that their request object assumes that all data coming
in is ISO 8859-1.  JRUN does NOT have a setting to fix this problem, so the
only way I could get it to work was to re-read the byte stream as UTF-8.

Subject: UTF-8 strings in ServletExec 4.1


Hi All,

I'm running Servlet Exec 4.1 in IIS4.0 in Windows NT.

I'm sending a multibyte string encoded in UTF-8 from a HTML page to a JSP.
In the JSP I'm reading it using getParameter() and showing it to the
resulting HTML. The string is coming as ????.

The JSPs are fine as they work properly in iPlanet Web Server 6.0 running on
Windows NT.

It seems that some setting need to be done in Servlet Exec 4.1 and/or IIS
4.0 to make this work. Could you please let me know what exactly need to be
done ?

Regards,
Sourav
