UMLAUTS Special Characters are not Getting Displayed Properly in a JSP Page When Application is Upgraded from WLS 10.3.6 to WLS (Doc ID 2661163.1)

Last updated on JUNE 05, 2024

Information in this document applies to any platform.


On WLS, you are unable to log into your application with the external LDAP user when the username contains UMLAUTS special characters.

The user exists in the Active directory but before it connects to the active directory, it gets converted as described above. As a result, the search fails.


 Upgraded from WebLogic Server 10.3.6 to Application JSP page is using ISO-8859-1 encoding. However, default encoding changed to UTF-8 from WLS 12.1.3 onwards
