websphere character encoding

Hi,

We had some character encoding issues in our application due to which the special characters (Language characters from Greek, italic, Spanish etc. and special characters like bullet, long hyphen etc from MS Word) were getting replaced with some unreadable characters. Hence we had set the encoding in WebSphere Generic JVM arguments as "-Dclient.encoding.override=UTF-8". Now this works fine when the database is Oracle or SQL but is not working for DB2. For DB2, the characters from MS Word (•‘””’— ) are still getting replaced with the junk characters. I am not sure how or why or is even related to the database type. Please let me know of any workaround.

Thanks,
Tushar
