Hello friends,

I have a basic doubt wrt to ensuring internationalization support in Java applications. In my Java code, I try to "enforce" UTF8 encoding by doing:



However, when the data value in the database is , the resultant string is mangled up :

However if I remove the encoding and just retain the String in the above code:



the output is fine:[CODE]Localiza��o Amostra[/CPDE]

I am collecting information on the database but it might be UTF-16 as well. I am unclear on what I am doing wrong and what I should be doing to ensure internalionalization completely.

Could any kind soul pl help?

Thanks.

Do this:

and nothing else. The database driver and the database between them should take care of any encoding issues. And from what you say in your second example, that is already working. I don't understand why you think you have to do anything else.
