When connect to Siebel using Java data bean we get the following error message.

“Could not open a session in 4 attempts. {1} (SBL-JCA-200)”

We got the following information from Java log file
“<Error><ErrorCode>8211</ErrorCode> <ErrMsg>Code Page "UTF-8" is not supported. Use "-encoding" option to change the file encoding. (SBL-JCA-328) </ErrMsg></Error>

Checked in the My Oracle Support to get some information about this. Found one <Document   related to this.
Our Siebel environment is running in UTF-8

We are trying to connect from “Tomcat” to “Sun1 Solaris” environment.

This code works as a standalone java program, also from a jsp page deployed in a tomcat server installed in windows and from a jsp page deployed in a SUN One appserver installed in Solaris OS. But does not work from a jsp page deployed in tomcat server in Linux.

I have attached the script and an excel file which gives the details about the environment and connection status.
