You must define an encoding filter to process and set  encoding of
request's content.

public class RequestEncodingFilter implements Filter{

private String encoding;

public void init(FilterConfig config) throws ServletException {
encoding = "UTF-8";
String enc = config.getInitParameter("encoding");
if(enc !=null && enc.length() > 0){
encoding = enc;

public void destroy() {}

* <p>Dispatching specified request  changing its parameter's
* encoding. Struts applications generate pages  in utf-8. Then
* parameter of normal PC browser is in utf-8. That's why this
* handles it in utf-8. If some user agent works on different
* character encoding can be specified in web.xml, filter element.
* </p>
public void doFilter(ServletRequest request,
ServletResponse response,
FilterChain chain)
throws IOException, ServletException {

chain.doFilter(request, response);

and then define it in web.xml
