Hi,
    I am inserting the thai data into the database thru hibernate. This is working absolutely fine. When i am trying to retrieve the thai data from the database It is displaying some junk characters. Probably while data is set into the data objects the UTF-8 conversion is required. How do i go about with this.

Hibernate version: 3.1.2

Name and version of the database you are using: Oracle 10g


Thank U,
Parimala

Guide to Performance: Optimization & Monitoring

Nowadays, monitoring is a mixture of tools, systems, and codes—making it a very complex process. And with this complexity, comes variables for failure. Get DZone’s new Guide to Performance to learn how to proactively find these variables and solve them before a disruption occurs.

What is the output when you directly query it from the db? is that also giving the same special characters, then the CHAR SET used by the db and that by hibernate is different, execute the following query and find the charatecter set used by db and use the same

SELECT VALUE
  FROM nls_database_parameters
 WHERE parameter = 'NLS_CHARACTERSET'

There ia no problem with Hibernate in this case.
This is all due to Struts. It's resolved.
Thanks and sorry

Here it goes


Added the filter in the web.xml
      <filter>
            <filter-name>UTF8Filter</filter-name>
            <filter-class>
                  filters.UTF8Filter
            </filter-class>
      </filter>



public class UTF8Filter implements Filter {

      public void destroy() {
      }

      public void doFilter(ServletRequest request, ServletResponse response,
                  FilterChain chain) throws IOException, ServletException {
            request.setCharacterEncoding("UTF8");
            chain.doFilter(request, response);
      }

      public void init(FilterConfig filterConfig) throws ServletException {
      }

}
