I am facing an encoding issue in my web application.
I am using properties file (resource bundle) to store language text.
If I check encoding of my properties file using notepad, it's UTF-8 and I see proper arabic character when I open it in notepad.
When I build my application using JDeveloper, in my properties file under classes folder, arabic characters are converted like this:
Also encoding of this file is shown as ANSI in notepad.
Surprisingly, in browser, characters appeared perfectly fine (دخول).
Now when I build my application using ant, I've a copy task which is copying this properties file from src folder to classes folder.
After running build script, if I see encoding of properties file under classes folder, it still is UTF-8 and characters are in arabic only.
However in browser, characters doesn't appear properly.
As far as I know UTF-8 encoding is supposed to cater for all languages but in my case something is wrong somewhere.
I tried following also in copy task:
However still no luck.
Anyone know where I am wrong?
