change it to:

            BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(new FileInputStream(fileName), charset));

where charset is the encoding ujsed in the text file

you'll also need to specify ewncoding when saving to database

If you want to save a file as a string it would be more efficient to do it more like below.


      public static String fileToString(String fileName) {
            Reader in = null;
            try {
                  File f = new File(fileName);
                  StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer((int)f.length());
                  char[] charBuf = new char[BUF_SIZE];
                  in = new InputStreamReader(new FileInputStream(f), "UTF8");
                  int charsRead = -1;
                  while ((charsRead = in.read(charBuf, 0, BUF_SIZE)) > -1) {
                        sb.append(charBuf, 0, charsRead);
                  }
                  return sb.toString();
            }
            catch(IOException e){
                  e.printStackTrace();
                  return null;
            }
            finally {
                  try { in.close(); } catch(IOException e) { /* ignore */ }
            }
      }
