As I had to waste more than one hour to fix the usual encoding issues one has with Tomcat, I’l documenting here what I needed to do. Change JAVA_OPTS in /etc/default/tomcat8 to:

JAVA_OPTS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Xmx1500m -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC -Djavax.servlet.request.encoding=utf8 -Dfile.encoding=utf8"

It seems this was the only change needed. Nothing needed to be changed in server.xml,, or /etc/init.d/tomcat8.

Would you still recommend MarkSweepGC over G1 or others?
