My initial assumption was that the value is somehow incorrect, but the exception also happens after modifying the value in debug via watch. Such strings as "ТЕСТ тест" do not happen to lead to exception, but string "ПЕТЕРБУРГСКИЙ" always leads to it. Actually, even after updating database field, the value of "ИЙ" also leads to exception (the values are in russian).
The value in point contained in an @Entity class, which in turn contained in webservice response wrapper class. The field named 'name' of database type varchar(100) and Java type String. Database uses UTF8 encoding.
Could anyone give some insight on possible roots of the issue?
Software used is NetBeans 6.5, Glassfish v2ur2 and PostgreSQL 8.3.
One more thing, If I change the encoding to iso-8859-1 it works fine.
BTW, which DB do you use? and let's keep in mind that even though the DB is configured to utf-8, it doesn't necessarily mean that the DB can verify that all the data which comes in, is indeed utf-8 encoded data.

I have the same error. I want to set enconding for a web service output method in GlassFish! Do you know how to fix it, Nic Nilov? Thank you!
