I am running eDirectory and I have a webapplication on a Tomcat
7 server. I have developed a Java Password Self-Service application
which uses LDAP to set the users password. It works fine, exept for when
someone uses , , or such characters as or . Then the eDirectory
interprets it as something else. For example becomes ø and I am able
to log in with the "wrong" password. So, I have tried a couple of

Force my HTML page to use UTF-8: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
Force JSP to use UTF-8: <%@page contentType="text/html"
Force the Tomcat connector to use UTF-8: URIEncoding="UTF-8"

Now if I write the password out in my application output, it shows the
wrong password. So I have tried converting it in my Java application to
UTF-8 and output it, and it is correct and I set that password on the
user with LDAP, but it still ends up setting the wrong characters.

Anyone got an idea what I have to change for eDirectory to understand
UTF-8 when setting the password over LDAP?
