Subject Re: request.getCharacterEncoding always return null ?
Date Tue, 24 May 2005 07:50:06 GMT
 From the java docs:


public java.lang.String getCharacterEncoding()

    Returns the name of the character encoding used in the body of this 
request. This method returns null if the request does not specify a 
character encoding

        a String containing the name of the chararacter encoding, or 
null if the request does not specify a character encoding

So, the browser might not be sending the character encoding in the 
request.  I think browsers won't send the encoding when default encoding 
is used.  Some browsers might not send it at all.
