I have problem with above methods. I appereciate your help.

1- I have a problem with getCharacterEncoding.

If I do not use setCharacterEncoding I always get "null" from getCharacterEncoding.

2- If I setLocale on reponse or request I get desired locale if I use getLocale. But if I do not setLocale and just want to see what Locale is set on user's browser, I always get en_US.

Are above things normal?

Did you set other language rather than english as prefer language in your browser when you try to access your jsp by browser?
