Subject [jira] Created: (JS2-555) Unable to use Unicode (UTF-8) in user names and passwords
Date Thu, 13 Jul 2006 09:38:29 GMT
Unable to use Unicode (UTF-8) in user names and passwords
---------------------------------------------------------

         Key: JS2-555
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-555
     Project: Jetspeed 2
        Type: Bug

  Components: Security  
    Versions: 2.1-dev    
    Reporter: Thorsten Berger


Currently, it's not possible to use utf-8 characters in usernames and passwords.
In my case, some of our users reported problems with their passwords as they used some very
common german characters.

I will attach a patch for Jetspeed2 on Tomcat 5.0 and 5.5. However, I could not verify the
behaviour with Tomcat 5.0. The patch is working fine with Tomcat 5.5.
The patch solves the problem by:
- setting UTF-8 as character encoding in LoginProxyServlet (let me know if you'd prefer looking
up the character encoding in the MediaType of the Agent's CapabilityMap)
- setting UTF-8 as character encoding in tomcat's FormAuthenticator valve (configured in jetspeed's
context.xml)


It would be great if this patch could find its way into the next 2.1 release ;)

Regards, Thorsten
