When using the AQ Adapter in BPEL, with customer data that has German characters like Jörg. When the message is received it is properly displayed in Oracle EM console and it is correctly enqueued into Oracle AQ tables but when the message is dequeued by the target process, the characters are garbled for "ö".

When the same message is dequeued by Oracle database API, the character is not garbled

Below is the actual example.

Data when received into SOA

  Daniel xxxxx
  c/o Jörg XXXXX

Data after dequeued from the Queue using Oracle AQ adapter

  Daniel xxxx
  c/o Jörg xxxxxx
