I am trying to insert arabic data from a JSP page to Oracle table. Oracle is set with NLS_LANG = to arabic character set. When i try to insert the record it is geting saved in the form of unicode in the table. because of which each arabic character is taking nearly 6-7 charcters. I am having space prob. as well.
In JSP also i am using contentType="text/html;charset=windows-1256" but if the data i key in is small one inarabic i am able to see it properly, here also data is getting stored in the for of unicode.
Even i tried to insert arabic data into the table directly, this data is retrieved in teh for of "???" rather than arabic language.
Can anyone help me how to resolve this.
Thanks in advance. [ March 17, 2005: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]

This is not a very quick solution, but hope the following might help
Search for the following text "Database Access using JDBC" and have a look at that section.
Faced a similar problem earlier in chinese with DB2, we use unicode as the database encoding and use UTF-8 as the charset in HTML/JSP pages. We made a setting on the websphere app server too to follow the client encoding or something.(Cant recall what exactly.)
