Re: Using UTF-8 as charset in SetContentType

There are some changes in WAS 4.0 on encoding selection.

First, make sure to modify the file in WAS_ROOT directory:
Change the encoding for your desired locale. For example, if you want to
use UTF-8 for any locale, you'd change the file content as:
     ... ...

Then, remember to SetContentType() to the corresponding encoding.

Good Luck!

Hi All,

I'm using WebSphere's application server 4.0 on linux.
I'm setting the content type as charset=UTF-8.
In the linux OS I'm setting my locale to en_US.utf8 before starting the
application server.

I'm entering a japanese string from one form (user entered) and printing
the same string in the next form. It does not work. Where as if I try to
print a hard coded Unicode string it works fine.

Can anybody tell me what could be the problem ?
