found it's the Strut tag that's _NOT_ handling the utf-8 encoding correctly.
I outputted the following on my result jsp after the chinese is inputted:
Here, the 'name' is inputted in Chinese and encoded as utf-8:
<H1> With the Bean Write tag </H1>
NAME=====><bean:write name="loginForm" property="name"/> <BR>
password ==><bean:write name="loginForm" property="password"/>
<H1> With the standard Http request object </H1>
Name==><%= request.getParameter("name")%><BR>
password==><%= request.getParameter("password")%><BR>
With the bean:write tag the name is printed out as ???, while the standard
request object display the chinese characters correctly.
Can someone clarify why this is the case? I thought this would not matter
since reflection is doing the same call using
request.getParameter("property") to map the input to the form's property.
