Configure the Apache Tomcat Connector

Please change the default connector configuration in tomcat/conf/server.xml to ensure proper processing of UTF-8 characters.

The default setting is as follows:

<Connector connectionTimeout=”20000″ port=”8080″ protocol=”HTTP/1.1″ redirectPort=”8443″/>

Change this to the following:

<Connector connectionTimeout=”20000″ port=”8080″ protocol=”HTTP/1.1″ redirectPort=”8443″ URIEncoding=”UTF-8″/>

Without this modification, UTF-8 characters will not be processed correctly by tables filters and the Calendar Widget.

Note that, if you are using SSL, you must apply this modification to the line that starts with:

<Connector port=”8443″ protocol=”HTTP/1.1″ SSLEnabled=”true”…
