We always want UTF-8.
Is it better to set this as a system property passed to the JVM e.g.
Or is it better to set it programmatically:

It depends on your enviroment, I prefer to have it in a configuration file, then set it programmatically. That way you don't depend on Server Applications Admins, and it isn't hardcoded.
I agree. Here's the link:
