[UMN_MAPSERVER-USERS] Java Mapscript - querybyattribut SOLVED

I GOT IT!
try to run the attached Java source. If you pass it two arguments the
first being the path to the map file and the second the string to
search for and you pass
"Südliche Weinstraße" as the second it will work!
So why does it fail when "Südliche Weinstraße" is inside the Java
code? That is a problem that only happens when javac compiles the
source: javac translates all characters to unicode and in doing that
it gets the german characters wrong.
To solve this give javac the following option: -source 1.4

So I was wrong...but I'll leave the proof to the reader ;-)
