Iam using Jdk1.3 and Oracle 8.1.7. My OS is in english.
The NLS of Oracle database is set to UTF8.
The oracle database contains japanese characters. Iam using a java
program to fetch these japanese characters. Iam using JDBC to do this.
When i fetch this data and display it on the console or write into a file,
it is written as '?'(Question marks.)
I even changed the setting of my OS to support japanese, even then this
can anyone help me on this.
