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

>   Components: Security
>     Versions: 2.1-dev

> 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
