Sun GlassFish Web Space Server 10.0 Secure Web Access Add-On Guide

Character Set Encoding

HTTP standards require that HTTP headers or HTML meta tags specify a character set for web pages. However, sometimes this information is not available. The character set must be known so that encoding for the data is set and the data is displayed as intended by the creator.

To detect the character sets, install the SUNWjchdt package from the Java Enterprise System Accessory CD. If this product is installed, Rewriter will detect it and use it if necessary.

Note –

Using this product can affect performance, so you should install it only when required. See the jcharset_readme.txt for details on installation, configuration and usage.
