How can I install a new encoding(iso-8859-6) support to tomcat?

I have no problems with my locale tomcat, however at serverside charecters are not displayed properly.

Thanks in advance.

On Linux boxes, I add this line to the top of my wrapper:
export LANG=en_US.iso885915

try this:

In the Catalina.bat (windows) (windows)
apache$ (OpenVMS), file there must be a switch added to
the call to java.exe. The switch is:

-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 (or what do you need)

I cannot find documentation for this environment variable anywhere or what
it actually does but it is essential.

Moving this to the Apache/Tomcat forum. This forum is for Servlets questions.
