This week's book giveaway is in the OCMJEA forum. We're giving away four copies of OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide and have Paul Allen & Joseph Bambara on-line! See this thread for details.
On my local Windows machine I get the Euro-sign but when it is run in production '$' signs appears. I've checked the browser settings on the remote machine, German "de-de" is in the first position, followed by "en-us" ( or just German on its own ).
In the GlassFish admin console the locale domain attribute is left empty. I've been told that we always install the multilingual version of GlassFish ( currently 3.1 ). The admin console is shown in German.
Could anyone tell me where I should look next? Is the problem caused by the settings of the remote machine? Or the GlassFish installation? Any help will be appreciated, I'm a total GlassFish newbie.
The locale used by J2EE webapps when not explicitly requested by application code should be whatever locale the JVM running the appserver has been set up for. J2EE (and JSF) do not automatically get that information from the client.

Thank you. I've just checked - the machine on which GlassFish is running has the following setting "LANG=en_US.UTF-8". I ( obviously wrongly ) assumed that setting the preffered language in the browser would set the request
language as well.
