I am using SDL Tridion 2013 sp1, pages & components are published to broker DB as JSON format. Using DD4T 2.0 templates to generate JSON output.

Trying to consume the page & component presentation data from content broken in Angular 2 site using the DD4T Rest Service. I can able to retrieve the page json in proper format. I tried to retrieve the component data using below API call.

Example: http://myurl/componentpresentation/GetContent/5/123

API call return output as encoded chinese characters instead of component JSON data. I assume some decoding is required.

Please help me to resolve this. Thanks.

Solved the issue by adding below lines of code inside GetContent method in DD4T.RestService.WebApi ==> ComponentPresentationController

    byte[] bytes = Encoding.Unicode.GetBytes(content);
    content = Encoding.UTF8.GetString(bytes); 

Referred Component Presentations in SQL 2012 DB shows up as a different encoding with 2013 to fix the issue.
