Hi All,

I tried inserting Vietnamese characters into MySQL database through my java program. It is getting inserted but certain characters are being inserted as junk. And while trying to retrieve, i'm getting the same junk values in place of some characters. Can anyone tel me what should be done? Is there a problem in MySQL or is there any DB that supports these characters?

As long as the DB is created with a Unicode encoding there's no problem inserting any CVJK characters.
I agree. Here's the link:
