I have my application in java and MySQL. Now the client wants to support multiple languages on the site. I am using Resource bundles for this purpose and most of the languages work fine. But i am facing problems with asian characters. I am on Windows platform. I installed all the fonts. i am able to see the korean characters in my browser, but saving them to the mysql database gives me junk values there. I have made my database utf-8(charset), still no luck. Please help me out.
