UTF8 issue on solaris

I am unable to retrieve form POST data in utf-8 and display it back in Browser Client. I have added this line in the HTML form:
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

In Servlet Code, I have specified the encoding:
// Retrieve the parameter data from Request
byte[] paramValue= req.getParameter("firstName").getBytes("UTF8");
String paramString = new String(paramValue);

This servlet works fine on my windows 2000 & weblogic8.1. But the same servlet sends back the actual input character On Solaris.

I have set following on solaris:
environment variable: LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8
JVM argument : -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8

Thanks in advance.
I agree. Here's the link:
