**I am passing value to a servlet through URL through BufferedWriter.write().
sending code for calling servlet:
URL url = new URL("http://192.164.54.87:8080/ChatServlet/sendServlet");
URLConnection conn = url.openConnection();
conn.setDoOutput(true);
BufferedWriter out =new BufferedWriter(new OutputStreamWriter( conn.getOutputStream() ) );
out.write("param1="+param1+"¶m2="+param2);
out.flush();
out.close();

**And receiving values in dopost,but some of my characters are getting changed and are getting replaced by ?.
**Plz tell me if this is problem of servlets or request.getParameter().
**Also, in which form request.getParameter() read the parameter as Bytes or as characters.
Thanx

Set the proper character encoding before reading.
For e.g. request.setCharacterEncoding("UTF-8");

What is the encoding type?

If I understand correctly I think you'll have to use a url encoder like java.net.URLEncoder to encode the url with the parameters so for example the spaces in your parameters are transformed to +...

Hope this helps

I am sending characters of DVBW-TTYogeshEn font.
Which encoding will work for this.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
