I have a J2EE application that displays a dropdown of items, in Arabic text.
This data is stored in a table in underlying MySQL server.
The DB character set is set to utf8 and I have in my JSP the carset encoding as utf8 as well.
This works correctly on my workstation that runs windows 10, with my local MySQL db and other components [tomcat7 and httpd].
When I deploy my webapp WAR on the server [Centos7, linux], that has its own MySQL/tomcat7/httpd [all same versions and setups], then the content of my drop-down that's coming from MySQL table, displays as ????
Can someone please advise, where to look for resolution or at least point me to the right direction?
Thanks in advance.
