Hi,
We have a requirement in our application to handle German Characters(umlouts). When we try to insert or update a page with German characters, the german chars
are converted into some junk chars and stored in the db. When we retrieve them, the same junk chars shows up on the screen. We have set the character set to
UTF-8 in the jsp and in the servlet. The character set on the browser is also set to UTF-8. We are using Oracle thin driver and iAS 6.0 as the app server. We
even checked the database setting. We were told to set NLS_LANG parameter. That has been set too. Have any of you come across such a problem in your
application? or is there any other database setting or app server setting that we have missed out? Would appreciate an early response on this.

Thanks,

Try using character entity references. Instead of putting "ΓΌ" in your database, put "¨" in there instead.
