Hi Bill,

In working on a project where we're using a mule (3.3) client to create at rest request against a rest service based on resteasy 1.2.1.GA. The request is encoded in utf-8. From what I understand iso-8859-1 is used by default in a post.
 
We have tried to set the content type to:
"application/x-www-form-urlencoded ; charset=UTF-8"
 
But that results in a http 500 error. If  we use:
"application/x-www-form-urlencoded"
 
The request is processed but we get garbled chars later in processing.
 
Is there a way to use utf-8 encoding in the request?

Cheers,
Ove
