In our application, the browser encodes all request parameters with UTF-8 encoding and at web container level we decode them using the same UTF-8 encoding. On one of our Websphere instances, it is not working correctly. For some reason WAS is trying to decode those parameters using some other encoding. So all the parameters even before reaching our Java code get garbled. Because of this we could not process Japanese characters. Is there a setting on WAS that might be causing this?
WAS version: 5
OS version: Windows 2003
Web Server: IBM Http Server
I tried looking at options provided by http://www-306.ibm.com/software/globalization/j2ee/encoding.jsp
, but that didnt help.
