Hi,
Can you tell if it is possible to set the encoding type of all the request parameters in a filter.

The problem is that, i have created a j2ee project which deals with japanese characters.So,i need to use this
new String(value.getBytes("ISO-8859-1"), "UTF-8"); in my code whereever i am retrieving data from request objects
in order to display,update japanese values.Its a pain changing the code every here and there.

Can you comment on the possiblity of solving the issue with the help of filter?
A little hints on the approach will be enough.

I think request.setCharacterEncoding() might help you, but i am not sure.
