Accessing Japanese characters from text area

Greetings to all,

I am having a JSP page with a textarea in it. I access the value entered in the text area using a servlet.

But when I type Japanese characters in the text area, in the servlet I am getting the value as '?'.

I even tried Request.setCharacterEncoding("ISO-2022-JP"); in the servlet before accessing the value from the text area. But still I am getting '?'.

Any help appreciated..

Thanks

First, make sure that your html is set to the correct encoding. For example, if your page is EUC encoded, you should have :

or UTF-8:


But still I am getting '?'.

Where ? How are checking the content ?

Hi Christophe,

As you suggested I added the following lines in my JSP:



In the servlet I'm using the following code for fetching the value (which has japanese characters) from JSP and writing it to html file:


When I open the testing.html in IE browser, I see only '?' for Jaapanese characters... I even changed the encoding of IE to UTF-8..

Thanks

I'm not sure of what will happen if you don't specify which encoding you are using for your file. There may be a better way to do it, but try this :
