ERROR: could not convert UTF-8 character 0x00ef to ISO8859-1

Hello all,

i wrote a parser that moves stuff from .txt-file to postgresql. Works fine until scandinavian characters are encountered (a with dots, o with dots etc).

---

java.sql.SQLException: ERROR: could not convert UTF-8 character 0x00ef to ISO8859-1

---

The odd thing (?) is that when i'm using the same parser with mysql-database&driver, everything works just fine.

Any ideas how to convert/parse/whatever those scandinavian characters or any other solution how to solve this problem ?

Thanks,

- John
