i use oracle 8 database with US7ASCII encoding, and i use oracle thin driver to connect to it.
i have a table there columns are VARCHAR2 anf LONG.
when i use ResultSet.getString() from a VARCHAR2 column all is OK and i see french characters correct. but when i do the same with a LONG column i see wrong characters on the place of french ones. That happens because in case of VARCHAR2 and CHAR column the Thin driver converts automatically data from US7ASCII to UCS-2 (a Java string) but HOW TO CONVERT a LONG column into Java String ?
Please help if you know the answer.
