Subject:Regarding storing non-english chars in mysql
View as plain text  
Dear all,

I have a problem in migrating a GUI app(displays multi lingual data like Arabic) which
currently uses oracle as backend db to mysql (5.1). Currenly in oracle I am using NVARCHAR
datatype to store the Arabic chars. How do I incorporate the same functionality in mysql ?
I have tried a sample servlet/jsp to insert the arabic chars into mysql by creating a
table having two columns of NATIONAL VARCHAR type, but it's not displaying Arabic chars
instead only questions marks are there.

One more thing in sample example is that before inserting I am converting to UTF-8.
