    problem with german umlauts in j_security_check formfields

    blauhut Newbie

      I have an own LoginModule extending AbstractServerLoginModule to access an external UserAuthentification, but I have a strange problem. When I enter an german umlaut like ä in the FormBased login, the password from the PasswordCallbackHandler returns me a strange two char sequence. I was not able to locate the real place where the ä gets transformed into the char sequence. But I realized that at the tomCats FormAuthenticator already the umlaut gots converted. Means the request contains already the converted umlauts. The source html page contains the "<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">" tag. I read in multiple thread in the forum the config switch for the TomCat Connector called "URIEncoding", but unfortunately I'm bound to jboss 3.2.3 with a TomCat 4 and all the messages were related to TomCat 5. Is there anything similar on TC4. I try the parameter, but without success.

      Or has anyone an idea whats going wrong?

      Thanks in advance.
