Hi everyone !

Actually, i'm working to get our grouper 2.2 ready for production (thanks again for your work on this version !).
Don't know if it's usefull but i had a problem with ComboBox in New UI. When i was trying to search a group/folder who contain an accented character, i had no result...

It was an encoding problem despiste the fact that UTF-8 is use everywhere...

The problem was the getParameter method (use in in, especially those lines (408 - 415) :

      if (param != null && StringUtils.equals("GET", this.getMethod()) && GrouperUiConfig.retrieveConfig().propertyValueBoolean("convertInputToUtf8", true)) {
        try {
          byte[] bytes = param.getBytes("ISO-8859-1");
          param = new String(bytes, "UTF-8");
        } catch (Exception e) {
          throw new RuntimeException(e);

So i change convertInputToUtf8 to false in and everything works now ! :-)

But if everything is in UTF-8, i don't know if this part of code is still useful ???

Maybe some people will have the same problem...That's why i share the solution :)

I hope this will help.
