Hi

I am retrieving the data from MS Access database using stand alone java client. One of the columns in the table contains UTF-8 character (Japanese). When I fetch the data and print on the console it is not showing me the actual value, instead I am getting junk data with ???. I have also set the character encoding to UTF-8 as part of my connection string but still it is not working. What could be the possible reason for this?

Thanks.

The console, to which System.out prints (and System.err as well), cannot handle Unicode characters, or almost anything that isn't ASCII. It's not a Java limitation.
