    Umlauts in result for SRU search

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 22

    Problem:
    SRU requests are answered properly but the character conversion is not correct as e.g. German Umlauts are not displayed correctly.

    Solution:
    Add the "backendcharset" parameter to the following setting:
    <syntax type="xml" marcxml="1" backendcharset="utf-8"
    identifier="info:srw/schema/1/marcxml-v1.1">

    Afterwards restarting of SRU server is required.
