I am a bit puzzled about the utf8 handling in spring. As I have the following within my web.xml ...
... I was under the impression that it would take care of all the utf8 business for me. Well, I was correct up to some extent... until I realised that the string parameters that I was reading in from the request url (within my controllers) were not being rendered properly !!
So although non-english characters were treated fine in other parts of the application... when it came to...
... it messed up. I don't fully understand why.... haven't I already specified in my web.xml that it should all be treated as utf-8 ??
String searchParameter = ServletRequestUtils.getStringParameter( request, "searchParam", "" )
Any pointers will be appreciated... thanks in advance.
