Hebrew is a big pain in Java. Java uses unicode to encode its characters. Unicode contains thousands of characters for every conceivable language. You need to go to the site www.unicode.com and look up the unicode codes for the Hebrew letters. Download the page.

To include unicode in your code you use "\u" unicode escapes eg.:

\u1020\u3254

(the numbers are made up)

If you want to translate from your keyboard you will have to write a function that generates these and feeds displays the resulting string rtl. Java has no built in rtl.

sakya, there is a company names "slangsoft" that offer sdk named "Emule SDK". It should support all the problematic languages. I'm sure that they support hebrew, because as far as I remeber - the company is located in Israel.
