Czech characters in delete group member dialog box are incorrectly HTML encoded


    • Bug Priority:
      Category 2
    • ACT Numbers:



      All Czech special characters (such as ě, š, č, ř, ž, ý, á, í, é, ú, ů) in the delete group member dialog are replaced by HTML symbols. For example char 'é' display as é Database using UTF-8 and in catalina.bat is defined JAVA_OPTS with -Dfile.encoding=UTF8. Web browser (tested in Google Chrome) language set to Czech.

      Steps to reproduce
      1. Install and run vanilla APS 1.8.1
      2. As per attached 'Activiti-spec_chars_problem.docx', implement steps 1-4 and 17 which encompass:

      • Login as admin to activiti-app
      • Create a new active user

      Email: Real e-mail address

      First name: Firstěščřžý
      Last name: Lastáíéúů.

      • Create group: Group ěščřžýáíéúů
      • Add user 'Firstěščřžý Lastáíéúů' into group 'Group ěščřžýáíéúů'
      • Identity management > Organization > Highlight 'Group ěščřžýáíéúů' and try to delete/remove user from group. Special characters in user name are as html entities: 

      Are you sure you want to delete "Firstěščřžý Lastáíéúů" from the group?

      Expected Behaviour
      Special characters should be displayed correctly.

      Observed Behaviour
      Each special character is HTML encoded

      Supporting evidence
      Reproduced with current latest APS 1.8.1 release
