I am having a problem with Spanish characters. My app server is jboss, os is linux and the charset iam using is UTF-8.
Iam using struts framework. All my java classes are compiled in UTF-8.
I have a form where i have to post some spanish data for e.g: Lácteos is a word in the post data.
I receive it as a request parameter in action class. When i print it in action class the accented character in the word turns into some strange character. which in turn messes up the rest of the code flow.
I am not having this problem in windows , its only in my dev environment which is linux.
I have to find a solution to this before i have to move it to QA or push alive.
I have tried a coupe of steps:-
I am forcing the java encoding to be UTF-8 in the java action files
All the Jsps are in UTF-8 encoding.
During form post , I have forced form to accept UTF-8 encoding, but that didn’t work too
Please let me know if any of you have experienced such issues.
