Hi,
When i use _resultset.getString(n) of 'jConnect 2.1' to fetch a
database field containing Chinese characters, the return string is
not correct.

I read this from jConnect 2.1 beta Release Notes:

The 2.1 Release of jConnect for JDBC provides support for Western
European characters contained in the ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1) character
set, such as English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, and Dutch.
Support for Asian languages such as Japanese, Chinese, or Korean is
planned for a future release.

as it promised, jConnect 3.0 beta supports Chinese now, but to my
dissapointment, it never supports jdk1.0.2.

Please help me! how can i make jConnect support both jdk1.0.2 and
Chinese character set, or where can i get type-4 jdbc driver which meet
my requirement?

AAAAAny help will be appreciated! Thanks very much!!

sincerely,
Zhuang

The 1.0.2 release of Java does not have support for multi-byte character
conversions to UCS-2 -- the Unicode character set which Java uses
for all character representations internally. We explicitly decided
to stop support for the 1.0.2 version of the driver because many of
the new features we are putting into jConnect 3.0 require support
from the JDK1.1 classes -- Internationalized character set conversion
is just one of them.

If you upgrade your browser to Netscape Communicator 4.0.1a+,
Internet Explorer 4.0 (with the Java option), or HotJava 2.0,
then you will be able to run jConnect 3.0 applets.
