You should probably check to be sure the application server is running in
(was started with) an ISO-8859-1 locale. Your code presumes that the app
server has done an ISO-8859-1 -> UCS-2 conversion, but the actual conversion
done is influenced by the application server’s locale (in some application

Subject: JSP international character support

I am trying to add international charset support to a JSP based application.
Have a jsp generated form where the client can input some text in a field.
Name of
the field being "text1".
A servlet is supposed to read the data and store it.
How am I reading the stuff?  as follows
String text = new String(rq.getParameter("text1").getBytes("ISO-8859-1"),
                //dumping bytes here
                for (int ii = 0 ; ii< text.length(); ii++)
                  System.out.println("  text bytes " +

But even here at this initial stage with no other operations being carried
out the
byte dump shows garbage.

I have tried a lot of different ways and means but to no use.  I am using
2.2 so no question of using request.setCharEncoding()

rq here being an object of com.jspsmart.upload.Request

Again have no choice to change it.

Yes did carried out a snoop between the client machine and Server.  No data
is being
lost there so the prolem is in the code.
