my problem is that the umlaut characters in an application pages (WAR) are not properly rendered when Tomcat is started as a service, but when I start the server manually it all looks good. I've checked the system's encoding (en_US.UTF-8) and it should working properly in both cases.

/etc/init.d/tomcat7

#!/bin/bash  
# description: Tomcat Start Stop Restart  
# processname: tomcat  
# chkconfig: 234 20 80  
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk  
export JAVA_HOME  
PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH  
export PATH  
CATALINA_HOME=/opt/tomcat  

case $1 in  
start)  
sh $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh  
;;   
stop)     
sh $CATALINA_HOME/bin/shutdown.sh  
;;   
restart)  
sh $CATALINA_HOME/bin/shutdown.sh  
sh $CATALINA_HOME/bin/startup.sh  
;;   
esac      
exit 0  

Can you please help me out with this problem?

Solution source here: Utf-8 in tomcat

Add the property -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 to the CATALINA_OPTS variable or set it at runtime.
