Importing Multiple Shape Files with UTF-8 encoding into Oracle.

hi every one,

My main task is to import bulk shape files encoded in UTF-8 into Oracle.

I am using MapBuilder which have a very nice option for importing bulk shape files/directories.

But unfortunately i can not find any option to set encoding to UTF-8 in MapBuilder.

All of my shape files also include a CPG file (

This CPG file contains the name of character encoding, which is in my case UTF-8.

Perfect solution will be that MapBuilder can some how read this CPG file and set the encoding system automatically.

Any suggestion that how i can utilize this CPG file to set the encoding system of Oracle using MapBuilder.

I am using
- Oracle Database 10g Express Edition (Universal)
- MapViewer 10g with MapBuilder 11g
