Hi safri,
Im not sure of this, but setting the character set to UTF-8 should work, or may b UTF-16???

Have u added the chinese font support for your OS?

In my experience, to view Chinese characters, you have to have some Chinese viewing software installed, and run the program before you can read Chinese.
And also remember there are many kinds of Chinese characters out there: big5, GB, ...

Hi all,
Thank you for all your replies. Here is my code...
**************************************************
import java.sql.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
public class StreamConverter {
static void writeOutput(byte[] str) {
try {
FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream("test.txt");
Writer out = new OutputStreamWriter(fos, "UTF-8");
fos.write(str);
} catch (IOException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
}
public static void main(String[] args) {

try
{
Class.forName("sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver");
}

catch (java.lang.ClassNotFoundException e)
{
System.out.println("Rosak - tak jumpa class(jdbc driver): " + e.getMessage());
}

// Open the datasource
try
{
Properties prop = new java.util.Properties();
prop.put("useUnicode", "true");
prop.put("characterEncoding", "UTF-8");

String url = "jdbcdbc:cina";

Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(url, prop);
Statement stmt = con.createStatement(ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, ResultSet.CONCUR_READ_ONLY);

ResultSet rec = stmt.executeQuery ("SELECT * FROM Test");

while(rec.next()) {

String xx = new String(rec.getString("question"));
byte ucode[] = xx.getBytes("UTF-8");
System.out.println("This is byte ucode: "+ucode);
String Display = new String(ucode, "UTF-8");

writeOutput(ucode);
}

stmt.close();

} catch (SQLException s) {
System.out.println("Error s DBase --> " + s.toString() + " " + s.getErrorCode() + " " + s.getSQLState());

}catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println("Error e DBase -->" + e.toString() + e.getMessage());
}
}
}
**************************************************
Can anyone please.... tell me what's wrong with it....
I thank you in advance.
