Display Unicode value in JTextField

I have a column in oracle table having data type as NCHAR, and carrying value in UNICode (i.e. its a person name in urdu language).

Right now I retrieved the above column value from oracle by using below statement:

ResultSet rs = ((OracleCallableStatement)stmt).getCursor(2);


setDataArray(rs.getString(1));// Ignore this line; its working fine
setDataArray(rs.getString(2));//Ignore this line; its working fine
Reader name_native = rs.getCharacterStream(3);


Now, I don't know how to convert above Reader object for JTextField to display Unicode value.

Therefore, its my request to help me to resolve this issue, or may be I am not on the right path then please suggest me what to do; to accomplish the task i.e. display urdu in JTextField.

Looking forward to your kind and positive response.

Set a Font that has glyphs for those characters. One of the overloads of the canDisplay(...) or canDisplayUpTo(...) method may be useful to help find one.

Arial Unicode looks to be a likely candidate.
