I am looking for a simple and cost-effective servlet engine for the IBM EBCDIC UNIX/390 (OMVS) platform. The short version of my question is: Has anyone "ported/fixed" Tomcat to function (properly) with EBCDIC? I only manage to get it running using ascii encoded html/jsp pages...

From an amatures point of view this problem seems quite easy to fix?


Could this problem have been cured in V4?


Any comments or ideás would be much appreciated,
Thanks,
Dario.
