Hi,
I have a struts <html:text> field and I would like to allow user to input Chinese Characters. I am using UTF-8.
When pressing the submit button, it will write to the Oracle DB and get it back at once and display back to the struts textfield. However what I get back is some strange symbols. Even though I have set
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"> and
<%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" pageEncoding="UTF-8" %> in jsp page and request.setCharacterEncoding("UTF-8"); in struts action. It still didn't work. (As I heard that request.setCharcterEncoding() will set all request data to the specific charset, but I am now using form beans to get and set data rather than request.getParamter() ). So anyone can give me some suggestions?
I know that it works when I use new String(value.getByte("ISO-8859_1"), "UTF-8") , but I can't use it in every string as there will be 60 fields in that page. It will be very troublesome to set every field to UTF-8. Is there any method that I can set all the data to UTF-8 in the simplest way? Thx a lot.

"poorjava poorjava",
Thanks for changing your display name, but it is still not valid. As you can probably guess we take this rule quite seriously.
Your display name must be two words: your first name, a space, then your last name. Fictitious names are not allowed. Please change it to your real name or a close copy since accounts with invalid display names get deleted.
thanks,
Dave.
