JDBC unicode conversion issue

Hi All,

My database(Oracle 10g) characterset is set to ISO-8859-6(AR8ISO8859P6) to store arabic characters.
When I query the database, JDBC Converts the data from the database character set to Unicode.
Because of this unicode conversion some of the characters are lost(translated to ?)
same behavior for both oci and thin..

In JAVA Is there any solution to retrieve the data in database format(without doing any unicode conversion)?
Is there any driver available retrieve the data from oracle in database format( encoding)?

Thanks

Hi, Bob. This post looks like a duplication of this post on another forum. Could you please have a look at our FAQ entry entitled BeForthrightWhenCrossPostingToOtherSites? Thanks.
