Subject Re: [ib-support] InterClient, Tomcat Resource, JSP and charset
Author Rick Fincher
Hi Leos,

Yes, I'm using it with Tomcat, but I'm using the standard character set. I
have seen this question discussed a lot on firebird-java, but it wasn't an
issue for me so I don't know what the solution was.

I think you are on the right track with lc_ctype but you will probably have
to set it in your application because the Tomcat realm specifications don't
support passing that parameter.

If you signup and post to you can get some
help. The developers of the driver are on there and are a great help.

Sorry I couldn't help you more.

That's the only criticism I have of the driver- there aren't any good docs
