Unicode problem
Im using JDK1.3, im unable to fetch chinese and arabic text from
access 2000 database (Font used MS Unicode in Acces2000).Arent resultset.getString() supposed to do the job for me. Ive even tried
1.putting the various charsets in the properties of the connection
2.Changing to Arial unicode MS
3.Using Java.exe with various encodings
5. resultset.getUnicodeStream...etc
I am using Swings as front end.

Nothing works...what do i do???
