Locale-Sensitive Java Method
public void setContentType(String type)
Internationalization (I18n) Method Overview
setContentType sets the content type of the response being sent to the client.
The given content type may include a character encoding specification.
The response's character encoding is only set via this call if it is called
ServletResponse.getWriter is called. This method may be
called repeatedly to change content type and character encoding.
communicate the content type and 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
Content-Type header is used.
If the charset parameter passed in as part of the string argument 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.
