hey folks, this is a kind of a problem which
only those of you living and/or writing codes
in/for the countries with a unic native language can face.
i have a servlet which works with hebrew. some text arrives from the textfields filled by users. other text arrives with the html which is brought by the servlet (usual out.println stuff).
on the early stage i expected a problem with the
user entered text but i solved it through converting the textfields entered hebrew text into utf16. everything worked fine till today :roll: . i moved the project to another machine and the problems began. look at this: i have two machines.both with win2k, with
totally identical preferences. both of them has
tomcat 1.3. the only difference is that old "good" machine runs jdk 1.3 and the new "problematic" one has jdk 1.4. the whole hebrew test coming from inside the HTML brought by servlet turns into the lines of ??? ??.
can jdk 1.4 has such an influence on the implementation of the code? did anyone has expirience like this with hebrew/arabic/persian/
so on?
sorry that it took so long to explain
