Spring MVC UTF-8 encoding problem

HI All,

I am facing a weird problem with charset in my spring mvc application.

I have used a single MultiactionController for all views. Separate Form controllers for each form in my application.

For each jsp, I am using i have explicitly set the charset and pageEncoding to UTF-8. I have set the charsetEncodingFilter with encoding param as UTF-8.

My problem is all my forms are in UTF-8 and all my views from multiactionController are in ISO-8859-1. I have tried explicitly setting the responseHeaders, contentType to UTF-8. but noting worked.

Is this a framework issue with Spring 2.5.
I am using Spring 2.5, Hibernate 3 and jQuery for my development.

Filter code in my web.xml

code from my jps,

explicitly set the responseContentType in my MultiActionController

Is there any mistake in my configuration ?

Please give me a solution, why is it only problem with my views(form less jsps) but not with my forms ?
Is this the problem with controllers.
