I would like to know if it is possible to change the default comma separator CSV exportation in Geoserver using semicolon i.e. as a separator.

Some of the tables that I published have large text fields which are filled by users. So, these fields can contain commas as a part of data. Once I want to export a table to a CSV file by a WFS request, I am having unstructured content in some rows.

I had a look to the documentation but I've only found that and it seems no useful for my purpose.

Does anybody have any advice to find out a solution?


As far as I know, there is not way to set a different separator, unfortunately. Although Geoserver will quote fields containing commas.
