Subject RE: encoding problem
Date Thu, 27 Aug 2009 23:03:09 GMT
Hi Shalin, strangely, things still aren't working. I've set the JAVA_OPTS through either the
GUI or to startup.bat, but absolutely no impact. Have tried reindexing also, but still no
impact - results such as -

“My Universe is Here�

Tomcat respects an environment variable called JAVA_OPTS through which you
can pass any jvm argument (e.g. heap size, file encoding). Set
JAVA_OPTS="-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8" either through the GUI or by adding the
following to startup.bat:

set JAVA_OPTS="-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8"
