ESB Replacing Chinese, Japanese, and Korean Characters by Inverted Question Marks (Doc ID 1060928.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 27, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Enterprise Service Bus - Version to [Release AS10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


ESB replaces Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) characters with inverted question marks. The source BPEL process picks up these values from a XML file and invokes an Asynchronous ESB routing service. The ESB routing service invokes a target BPEL service. When the source BPEL process picks values from the file, the BPEL instance shows the CJK characters perfectly. However when you open the target BPEL instance, these CJK characters are replaced by inverted question marks.
This issue appears only when the ESB topics are setup to be database based, which is standard practice in a clustered environment. In a single node environment configured to use file based ESB topics everything works fine.
