In others JSPs within the same app (each document share the same codification tag) I can add data with special characters like ñ, á , ö, ê , etc.
however, in this particular form, they're added to database as junk characters like Ã¡ , Ã± , ...
I've already changed my tables' codification to UTF-8, to no avail
I believe it has something to do with the enctype="multipart/form-data" parameter
Is there anything you can suggest to stop this from happening?
I'm using BEA Weblogic 8.1.3

You read images with streams and encoding should not be a problem there. Text is a different matter. Does the problem occur when the file is uploaded or when the uploaded contents are inserted into the DB ?
the problem occurs whether I upload a file or not, everytime I enter 'foreign' characters. When I print the text in console, BEFORE doing the insert to the DB, it's already corrupted. Weblogic is somehow changing the codification of text in this particular Form.
It is probably not weblogic's fault. Set the encoding of the JSP page to display. If you are reading this input in some form (instead of having net UI read it automatically), then mention the encoding of the text.
