Sending special character

I have a REST POST request who is sending a lot of json data. Part of those data contains special character letters like in "éèêàù". When I send the data like that, I got an error message saying:

 

HTTP Status 500 – Internal Server Error

Type Exception Report

Message Servlet execution threw an exception

Description The server encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from fulfilling the request.

However, if I remove all special character from the request, everything goes fine.

 

I have try adding "Encoding" "UTF-8" to my header but it doesn't work.

 

So, what should I do to be able to send data containing special character?

 

(Note that the same request with special character work on Postman)

Re: Sending special character

Did you try adding UTF-8 to this path?

 

"%SOAPUI_HOME%"\bin\SoapUI-X.0.0.vmoptions and add

"-Dfile.encoding=UTF8"

Save the file and restart ReadyAPI again. To check whether it is updated :-

 

Go to ready API - Help --> System Properties --> file.encoding
