I am creating a very simple application using Swing, and text file based db. I would like to input and output strings in Tamil language, can anyone please help me with this, I googled and was not very helpful.
I found sites that help writing and reading from text file using unicode, but what is the unicode encoding name in java for Tamil (or it doesn't support??). And, also in the text area, is it possible to see tamil strings as it is being typed? please help me with this. Thanks in advance

Welcome to JavaRanch.
There is no special encoding in Unicode for any particular language; "UTF-8" should do nicely.
TextArea can display any characters, as long as you have a font that contains them, but you probably have one already.
You may find his article helpful in learning about Unicode.
