You need do nothing more than install a font that can display Tamil characters and then use Java component set to that font. Another option would be to intall one of the larage Unicode fonts available, a subset of which may be able to display Tamil.

Thanks for your answer,
But How can i identify the character mappings between 2 languages.
When I open the tamil font, I got character equivalents for A-Z and a-z. But how can I get compound characters, for eg, for "WA" it displays corresponding tamil equivalents for W and A seperately. But I want W and A as single letter in Tamil.
Are u able to understand? sorry I cant type in tamil letters here, so I am not able to explain clearly.

Is there any easy way to find character mappings?

Thanks,
Raja

Character mappings outside the range you mention AFAIK do not exist.
