unable to store encrypted characters through servlet
Posted on 2001-06-06
I have a question and requires immediate attention. The problem is the following.
I have a palm application that I have set up to send a http post request using the INetLib API from palm. Now the information that I am posting are encrypted characters that get encrypted on the client side. However, when we view this data in the servlet we have generated to insert this data in the sql table it doesn't seem to recognize some of these encrypted characters. Some of the characters that the servlet doesn't recognize are shown as ? character.
One of the reasons this may be happeing is because java I believe uses 16 bit unicode character set. Now the encryption that occurs use 64 bit encryption. Does anyone know if this may be causing the problem. And if it isn't what needs to be done to rectify the problem? Thanks for your help.
