Character Conversions from Browser to Database: or There and Back Again
John O'Conner, Principal Consultant, J. O'Conner Consulting, Inc., USA

Intended Audience: N/A

This presentation considers the various points of character set conversions that may occur in a typical web based application. The session describes the path of character data as it travels from browser form, through 2nd tier business logic, and to its brief resting place within a database. Then it follows the data on a return trip to the browser. All along, common pitfalls and conversion errors will be described.
