-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 does not work in Weblogic 10

Hi Mates,

We were using Weblogic 8.1 (JDK1.4) and had a webservice deployed. Our client wanted the data sent in UTF-8 format, so we set a up a JVM parameter -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 in the server startup script. We tried the same thing when we upgraded to Weblogic 10 (JDK 1.5), but the encoding does not work. Is there a new parameter that should be set. Could you please help me out in this?

Thanks for your help in advance.

Thanks & Regards,

I believe WebLogic accepts utf8, not utf-8. Dash is not allowed. I do not have the resource I read it in, but if anyone has the same problem, you can give it a shot.

JAVA_OPTIONS="$JAVA_OPTIONS -Dfile.encoding=utf8"
should go in your file because that is sourced by all other lifecycle scripts.
When using NodeManager, make sure it is configured to use scripts.
Have you checked out Aspose?
