my old server is redhat 7.1 + tomcat 4.0 + mysql
I fix my problems by
1. add LANG=th_TH to catalina and
2. add <%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=TIS620" %> to my jsp page
This can solve my problems.... but!!
my new server is redhar 7.3 + tomcat 4.1.10 + mysql
I can't use my old code... it display "???" with any data that download from mysql database(I try to display it on console "System.out.println(x)" it show the correct encoding.)
I fix my new problems by delete <%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=TIS620" %>" but it have new problem!!! user should change his encoding every time (IEMenu->view->encoding->Thai)
How to set default to Thai?
or I should fix my problem by other way?
Thank you.
ps. I already have "<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-874">" in my code.
