I am trying to convert input parameter to UTF8 and then again get the original string from UTF8. This servlet works fine in Windows2000 but on solaris the converted value is not UTF8 but the original input parameter value. Is the code below the right way to convert the input string to UTF8 and to retrieve the original string back from UTF8.

Thanks in advance.

Convert input String to UTF-8:

// set the character encoding to UTF-8
req.setCharacterEncoding("UTF8");

// retrieve the bytes for firstName parameter
byte[] pb1 = req.getParameter("firstName").getBytes("UTF8");

// store the UTF8 String
String pb1Str = new String(pb1);

System.out.println("UTF8 String:" + pb1Str);


Retrieve input String from UTF-8:

// get the bytes from UTF-8 String
byte[] pb2 = pb1Str.getBytes();

// Decode the String from UTF-8
String pb2Str = new String(pb2, "UTF8");

System.out.println("Original String:" + pb2Str);
