Locale-Sensitive Java Method
public void setCharacterEncoding(String charset)
Internationalization (I18n) Method Overview
setCharacterEncoding sets the character encoding (MIME charset)
of the response being sent to the client, for example, to UTF-8.
Note that the charset argument must be one of those defined within the
IANA Character Sets.
If the character encoding has already been set by
setLocale(java.util.Locale), this method overrides it.
This method can be called repeatedly to change the character encoding. This method has no effect if
it is called after
ServletResponse.getWriter has been called or after the response has been committed.
Containers must communicate the character encoding used for the servlet response's writer to the client if the
protocol provides a way for doing so. In the case of HTTP, the character encoding is communicated as
part of the
Content-Type header for text media types.
If the charset parameter passed in does not support the characters
that the application is attempting to display in the browser,
those characters will be corrupted in the resulting page.
In order to support multiple languages in a Web application,
the UTF-8 Unicode encoding should be used.
Globalyzer will detect this call and report it as an I18n issue
regardless of whether it is being
used correctly. If an encoding argument is already being passed in,
Globalyzer will detect the call anyway to force developers to
double check that the correct value is being passed. If you have determined
that the call is being handled correctly, you can use Globalyzer's
functionality to ensure that it isn't picked up in a subsequent scan.
