Java Spring and UTF-8 encoding

Posted on: May 8, 2012

Things to take care

1) Set the contentType on the jsp via

<%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" %>

2) Set this tag inside the jsp:
<META HTTP-EQUIV="content-type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

3) Add the below filter to the web.xml

<!– Ensure UTF-8 encoded pages so that certain characters are displayed and submitted correctly –>


4) Make sure the database fields have appropriate collation like utf-8, utf-16
