    JAX-WS how to read a different charset

    Morten Nyhaug Newbie

      How can I set a JAX-WS webservice to accept content with charset="iso-8859-1" on a system that is using "utf-8"?


      If this was just a servlet, I would have done something like this:

      protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
              throws ServletException, IOException {
          String content = "";
          BufferedReader reader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(
                  request.getInputStream(), "ISO-8859-1"));
          try {
              for (String line = reader.readLine(); line != null; line = reader.readLine()) {
                  content += line;
          } finally {

      But how can I accomplish the same using a web service?
