Hi

I have a problem with MySQL5.0, I am inserting arabic values to a table using Callable Statement ,but I am getting the following error
java.sql.SQLException: Incorrect string value: '\xD8\xB4\xD8\xA7\xD8\xB1...'
I have specified the Table & column chatacter set as utf8, I am able to insert the same arabic character using Prepared Statement


Please help..


Thanks
