I am developing a web application with java/jsp as front end and oracle as back end.
The requirement is:
I am having some non english characters,I have to Insert these characters in oracle database,and later retrieve them and display them at front end.
I am not able to do it using Java Strings ,also oracle is not accepting non english characters
Can any one provide some solution to this problem
Appreciate u'r help in this regard.

Perhaps you could implement an encoding mechanism (eg how web browsers do it - use the % sign and then have the ascii code follow it). When you store your data to the database, use % followed by the character number (convert to a char and then use its integer value). If you need more help, just reply.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
