i found it's the Strut tag that's _NOT_ handling the utf-8 encoding correctly.
I outputted the following on my result jsp after the chinese is inputted:
Here, the 'name' is inputted in Chinese and encoded as utf-8:
<H1> With the Bean Write tag </H1>
NAME=====><bean:write name="loginForm" property="name"/> <BR>
password ==><bean:write name="loginForm" property="password"/>
<H1> With the standard Http request object </H1>
Name==><%= request.getParameter("name")%><BR>
password==><%= request.getParameter("password")%><BR>
With the bean:write tag the name is printed out as ???, while the standard
request object display the chinese characters correctly.
Can someone clarify why this is the case? I thought this would not matter
since reflection is doing the same call using
request.getParameter("property") to map the input to the form's property.

You'd get better results asking in the Frameworks (Struts) forum where more people would know what you're talking about.
However, the new Struts (still in Beta) has as one of its primary goals significant improvements in I18N. The 1.0.2 release was a good start, but not good enough.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
