Fedora+Tomcat+MySQL java.io.CharConversionException

Hi, I create a database connection successfully in Window but it causes "java.io.CharConversionException" in Linux.
Do I need to correct my code or install something on my server?

Here is the detail error log:

The version of Tomcat that comes with Fedora is compiled for GCJ and is compiled to native code:

You will need to download Tomcat and the JDK. You can look here for the instructions:

Another option is to use Centos instead of Fedora.

It looks like the problem is related to the GNU gcj (Java compiler). It seems like it may not work for your application due to the use of unicode or JDK version:

If you make sure that your Tomcat instance uses Sun's compiler you should not have this problem.
