I'm having problems getting unicode characters from my MySQL database into my Java
program. I'm using the Connector/J driver and MySQL 5.
I have made some additions to the MySQL my.cnf file which have the effect of allowing
the unicode characters to display when running queries in MySQL.
But when running a query through Connector/J and Java the java output is ? wherever a
unicode character is expected.
I'm lost as to a solution.
Does anyone have an idea of how I can fix this?
I have compiled the Java program with the utf8 character set flag but this doesn't
help. I don' t think the problem relates to Java since I can get normal Java programs
that don't connect to a database to output unicode characters without issue. It's either
a MySQL characterset setting or a Connector/J setting.
