I want to insert japanese data from jsp. In the jsp I have one field and I am copying a japanese text in it and then posting this request to DB2. When I am trying to retrieve this data in another jsp, I am getting junk(???). Pl. help me to solve this problem. Thanks in advance Regards Nitin
Try this code in your JSP <% String s1 = request.getParameter("param"); s1 = new String(s1.getBytes("ISO-8859-1"), "UTF-8"); %> the string s1 will have your japanese character data. You can use this string to insert into the database.
