An Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) Mapping / Interface that loads a mix of European and Arabic data into an UTF-8 comma delimited text file seems to generate incorrect records:

For example, when both English and Arabic data must be generated, the expected results are as follows:



... however, instead it is generated as:

"1168","الينبوع","100218021","1 JEDH 24","1002180","جدة","2","JED","102","<STRING1>","33","<STRING2>","1","<STRING3>"

Observe above that:

In the ODI Studio > Topology, the File Data Server has been set to use:

JDBC Driver: com.sunopsis.jdbc.driver.file.FileDriver
JDBC Url: jdbc:snps:dbfile?ENCODING=UTF8
