          when you save the data to SQL server you must converted to Unicode first

            if possible, can you provide a working example?


            problem was solved by setting the charSet encoding to "UTF-8" in the connection to sql server using the jdbc-odbc bridge

              If the text was correctly read than the data should be available as UTF-16 in the memory. Converting it with this call should help if utf-8 is required. Remember that you get a ByteBuffer of which you can call the array() method to retrieve the raw data.

              Hope that helps.
