JSP Chinese characters scrambled even in UTF-8

Hello everybody,

JSP Chinese characters scrambled even in UTF-8 encoding set in my jsp pages.I use Struts2 framework.I set the encoding as follows.

<%@ page
import="java.util.List,com.coin.core.model.transaction.SalesImagesVO,com.coin.core.util.StringUtil" pageEncoding="UTF-8"

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8"/>

In my Struts2 action,I added the lines for each field to which i assign Chinese characters,they are

purchasevo.setProductName(new String(purchasevo.getProductName().getBytes("ISO-8859-1"),"UTF-8");

Even I set the encoding as above,It works temporarily till i trigger the next action and the chinese characters were

scrambled and appear in the jsp as peculiar characters.

How i can i get the same chinese characters when page control navigates from one page to another page.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Hi Ramesh ,

Try using setcharacterencoding filter in front of the struts2. please refer the thread attached here it will give you the better idea.

I have implemented i18n with japanese in jsp servlet but didnt find any issues its working good so basically there something which is changing the encoding for request.

Refer this thread which will be helpful to you.

I agree. Here's the link:
