Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 7.0 to 10.3.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A web application deployed in WebLogic Server (WLS) 7.0 stores and reads non-English characters (UTF-8 and UTF-16) in a database. Another web application deployed in WLS 9.x and higher accesses the same database and needs to read and write non-English characters as well. However, these characters display incorrectly. They show as corrupt characters instead.
