Filling clob with non ascii characters

Hello,
I have had some problems with clobs and usage of german
umlauts (����). I was'nt able to insert or update
strings containing umlaute in combination with string
binding. After inserting or updating the umlaut
characters were replaced by strange (spanish) '?'
which were upside down.
However, it was working when I did not use string bindung.
I tried varios things, after some time I tracked
the problem down to to oracle.toplink.queryframework.SQLCall.java. In the
prepareStatement(...) you find something
like
ByteArrayInputStream inputStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(((String) parameter).getBytes());
// Binding starts with a 1 not 0.
statement.setAsciiStream(index + 1, inputStream,((String) parameter).getBytes().length);
I replaced the usage of ByteArrayInputStram with CharArrayReader:
// TH changed, 26.11.2003, Umlaut will not work with this.
CharArrayReader reader = new CharArrayReader(((String) parameter).toCharArray());     
statement.setCharacterStream(index + 1, reader, ((String) parameter).length() );
and this worked.
Is there any other way achieving this? Did anyone
get clobs with non ascii characters to work?
Regards -- Tobias
(Toplink 9.0.3, Clob was mapped to String, Driver was Oracle OCI)

I don't think the console font is the problem. I use Lat2-Terminus16 because I read the Beginner's Guide on the wiki while installing the system.
My /etc/vconsole.conf:
KEYMAP=de
FONT=Lat2-Terminus16
showconsolefont even shows me the characters missing in the file names; e.g.: Ö, Ä, Ü

  • Problems with non-ASCII characters on Linux Unit Test Import

    I found a problem with non-ASCII characters in the Unit Test Import for Linux.  This problem does not appear in the Unit Test Import for Windows.
    I have attached a Unit Test export called PROC1.XML  It tests a procedure that is included in another attachment called PROC1.txt. The unit test includes 2 implementations.  Both implementations pass non-ASCII characters to the procedure and return them unchanged.
    In Linux, the unit test import will change the non-ASCII characters in the XML file to xFFFD. If I copy/paste the the non-ASCII characters into the Unit Test after the import, they will be stored and executed correctly.

  • Cannot rename file with non-ASCII characters when using the

    My application moves files from one directory to another by calling File[] srcFiles = srcDir.listFiles() to get a list of files in the source directory, and then calling srcFiles.renameTo(destFile) to rename each file.
    This does not work (renameTo returns false and the file is not moved) under the following circumstances:
    - the file's leaf name contains non-ASCII characters, for example "�"
    - the OS is Solaris 9
    - the LANG and LC_* environment variables are unset, i.e. the C locale is being used
    If I set the LANG environment variable to, for example, en_GB.UTF-8 then the rename succeeds.
    I have tried calling srcFiles[index].getName().getBytes("UTF-8") and the non-ASCII characters are being replaced with ? (0x3f) characters when LANG is unset.
    Is this a bug in the JRE? I would argue that since my code does not actually manipulate the filename (I just use the File object that File.listFiles() gives me) then the rename should succeed. Of course I would not expect the file name to be displayed correctly if I printed it out.
    I have reproduced this behaviour with JDK 1.4.2_05 and 1.5.0_04 on Solaris 9.

    Thanks for the info Alan.
    I considered setting the locale in the environment (this sounds like the "correct" fix to me and we might implement it later), but this application shares a WebLogic server with many other applications so we would have to do a huge amount of testing to make sure that the locale change wouldn't break the other apps. In the end I worked around the problem by making the code that generates the filenames in the first place strip out any non-ASCII characters (the names of the files are not critically important).
    Looking forward to JSR-203, in the meantime perhaps a note about this behaviour in the java.io.File javadoc would be useful.

    How can i handle this situation except by writting my own decoder?

  • Problem with non-ASCII characters on TTY

    Although I'm not a native speaker, I want my system language to be English (US), since that's what I'm used to. However I have a lot of files which have German language in their file names.
    My /etc/locale.conf has en_US.UTF-8 and de_DE.UTF-8 enabled. My /etc/locale.conf contains only the line
    LANG=en_US.UTF-8
    The German file names show up fine within Dolphin and Konsole (ls -a). But they look weird on either of the TTYs (the "console" you get to by pressing e.g. ctrl+alt+F1). They have other characters like '>>' or the paragraph symbol where non-ASCII characters should be. Is it possible to fix this?

    I don't think the console font is the problem. I use Lat2-Terminus16 because I read the Beginner's Guide on the wiki while installing the system.

  • Publishing pages with non-ASCII characters to folder

    There is a weirdness/anachronism in exported file names from iWeb'08.
    I have a page "Mökin katto" (that is Finnish).
    "ls" in Terminal shows the exported folder ok, like
    Mökin_katto.html
    Mökinkattofiles/
    Tarring and uploading to show on my Apache web server did not work so good, though. I changed the server to operate in UTF-8 locale and also use UTF-8 as the default character set. Still no success. At this point, I wanted to check the exported folder in the source (my MacBook). Tab completion didn't work:
    % Mö<TAB>
    didn't give any results. At this point, I wrote a simple Python script to dump the filenames. I created pages with different Scandinavian characters and capitalizations to demonstrate (I have cleaned the output a bit to remove unnecessary filenames):
    % ls
    MäkiÄn_katto.html MökiÖn_katto.html feed.xml

    Apparently Ö and ö are translated to the sequences '"O" 0xcc 0x88' and '"o" 0xcc 0x88', Ä and ä to '"A" 0xcc 0x88' and '"a" 0xcc 0x88' and finally Å and å to the sequences '"A" 0xcc 0x8a' and '"a" 0xcc 0x8a'. Looking into this a bit more, those ("0xcc 0x88" and "0xcc 0x8a") are the UTF-8 encodings of COMBINING DIAERESIS (U+308) (http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/0308/index.htm) and COMBINING RING ABOVE (U+030A) (http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/030a/index.htm).
    The generated links in the pages are in the short (Latin1 equivalent) form, but the filenames are in this format. The meaning of the strings is the same, but e.g. Apache doesn't internally canonicalize the paths, which results in broken URLs. I think iWeb should export the filenames and the URLs in identical UTF-8 strings (which quite likely should be the Latin1-equivalent Unicode code points). Especially as e.g. Terminal and bash only work with the short forms.
    Is there an option to make iWeb behave this way?

    I tried checking whether changing my keyboard layout (I've created the current one with Ukelele) to one which wrote decomposed characters changed things; it didn't. The filenames and generated html-files contained identical entries; I could use tab-completion for the generated filenames, though. (Bash was otherwise a bit confused about the change, so I can't recommend this)
    By canonicalizing the filenames with a script on the server (a Debian GNU/Linux system) end I can now make it work; the root cause of the discrefence between the file name and the URLs in the generated HTML is still a mystery. This would've worked if iWeb wrote decomposed UTF-8 characters to the URLs, also.

  • Difficulties retrieving documents with non ascii characters in name

    Hello
    I have a very simple container with only one document in it: *<ação nome="ação"/>*
    When using the dbxml shell to retrieve it, no problem:
    dbxml> open teste.dbxml
    dbxml> get "ação"
    1 documents found
    dbxml> print
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <ação nome="ação"/>
    (The strange characters appear because my terminal uses Latin1 encoding.)
    But I cannot retrieve the document with a very simple Java program (left out basic environment setup for clarity - I will put the full code in a follow-up post):
    String name = new String("ação"); +// will cause: com.sleepycat.dbxml.XmlException: Error: Document not found: ação, errcode = DOCUMENT_NOT_FOUND+
    // String name = new String("ação".getBytes(), utf8); +// will cause: com.sleepycat.dbxml.XmlException: Error: Document not found: ação, errcode = DOCUMENT_NOT_FOUND+
    String name = new String("ação".getBytes(), latin1); +// will cause: com.sleepycat.dbxml.XmlException: Error: Document not found: ação, errcode = DOCUMENT_NOT_FOUND+
    XmlDocument doc = container.getDocument(tx, name);
    Almost certainly this problem has to do something with the encoding of the name, but I cannot see why.

  • Replacing non-ASCII characters with HTML charcter references

    Hi All,
    In Oracle 10g or greater is there a built-in function that will convert a string with non-ASCII characters like this
    a b č 뮼
    into an ASCII string with HTML character references like this?
    a b & # x 0 1 0 D ; & # x B B B C ;
    (note I had to include spaces between each character in the sample code for message to prevent the forum software from converting my text)
    I tried using
    utl_i18n.escape_reference( val, 'us7ascii' )
    but for some reason it returns
    a b c & # x B B B C ;
    Note how it converted the Western European character "č" to its unaccented counterpart "c", not "& # x 0 1 0 D ;" (is this a bug?).
    I also tried a custom solution using regexp_replace and asciistr (which I can't include here because the forum software chokes on it) but it only returns the correct result for values <=4000 characters long. Unfortunately asciistr doesn't appear to accept CLOB values larger than 4000 characters. It returns an error message like
    (ORA-22835: Buffer too small for CLOB to CHAR or BLOB to RAW conversion (actual: 30251, maximum: 4000) ).
    I'm looking for a solution that works on CLOB data of any size.
    Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.

    So with that (UTF8) in mind, let's take another look.....
    As shown below, I used a AL32UTF8 database.
    Note: I did not use a unicode capable tool for querying. So I set console mode code page to 1250 just to have č displayed properly (instead of posing as an è).
    Also, as a result of using windows-1250 for client character set, in the val column and in the second select's ncr column (iso8859-1), è (00e8) has been replaced with e through character set conversion going from server back to client.
    Running the same code on a database with a db character set such as we8mswin1252, that doesn't define the č (latin small c with caron) character, would yield results with a c in the ncr column.

  • Cannot login with password containing non-ascii characters

    If the password is only ascii, it works.
    Username of login could be ascii or non-ascii, it doesn't matter, both works.
    I'm using sun java application server 9.1.
    jdbc realm.
    I'm not using hashing passwords, just clean (now)
    I tried configure realm Charset: UTF8 as last chance, but it doesn't work either.
    The problem is only with non-ascii characters in password.
    Any help very appreciated
    Thanks a lot

    hi,
    I know all that, but that's not the case. My app uses preparedStatements, everything is properly configured, in all pages, utf-8 is going from user to db and back without any problems.
    The only problem is with password field. As I am using form based login, with jdbc realm configured (again, nicely working when only ascii characters), I have very little chance to do something bad through the login phase.
    I'm not talking about special characters, I'm talking about non-ascii characters, let's say - Chinese, arabish, Russian alphabet etc.
    When user registers (my code), the fields are properly written to db. I have checked that, trust me.
    But the Sun app server realm seems to have some problems with the password field.
    (realm uses jdbc connection to mysql, the url contains all extra parameters to be sure about utf8. there is nothing more what can be configured...)
    If I try other alphabet codes in login and ascii in password, it works. But soon, as I use other alphabet code also in password, it doesn't work anymore.
    My only idea is, that I could try MD5 to create ascii only characters (I hope it works that way) on the client with javascript and then set Digest to MD5 in realm configuration. But still, it seems very strange. The clear way storage should also function? (now set Digest to 'none')
    Is it a bug of Sun App Server?
    thanks

  • Inserting non-ascii characters to ORACLE using SQLPLUS

    Hi
    I'm using Oracle 10.2.
    I would like to insert data with non-ascii characters, like éñ etc.
    For example:
    INSERT INTO FOO(NAME) VALUES ('abcñ');
    The problem is this - when I use SQLDeveloper with this query - there's no problem. However when I use SQLPLUS - I see the ñ character messed up.
    Most environments use some kind of escaping mechanism (like the \uXXXX in JAVA or %XX in URL escaping), but I simply can't find how to do so in SQLPLUS.
    Can somebody help please?

    Are you using "char" or "nchar" character datatypes? Make sure that the database character set defines the language script you need to support (see nls_database_parameters).

  • [SOLVED] KDEmod - problem with mounting b/c of non-ASCII characters

    Hi guys!
    I finally set aside a few gigabites for Archlinux - it is no more in a virtual machine So far I managed to configure everything with the excellent wiki. It's runnin' and kickin'. I run accross only one problem:
    When I insert a CD with a label that has non-ASCII characters (some Polish ones in my case) and I click on it's icon in Konqueror I get the message that "file such-and-such doesn't exist" - and the Polish characters are clearly misspelled (it is not a fonts' problem - I double checked). I can access the folder either via console or via konqueror if I go to the /media folder, though.
    Any ideas how I can fix it? If you need more info, let me know.

    You're welcome . Now it's advisable for you to edit the title of your initial post: add [SOLVED]. Perhaps more clear wording would be in order, too, for the benefit of the search engine. The problem seems to be a trifle in retrospect, but somehow it takes some effort to find the solution, doesn't it ?

  • Problems with password including non-ASCII characters

    I am a German language user with a German keyboard but an English OS as main language. Therefore my passwords (simple user and admin) includes non-ASCII characters used in German, French and Spanish language, which increases security. This works fine in the majority of login scenarios. There are, however, 3 scenarios where neither my non-ASCII simple user nor my non-ASCII admin PW are accepted:
    1) running "sudo" in Terminal;
    2) When I try to shut down and another user account is still open. Doing this brings up a login window asking for the PW of the other user that does not accept non-ASCII;
    3) Using Leopard/SnowLeopard CacheCleaner. Upon opening, this app asks for an admin PW, but does not recognize non-ASCII.
    Am I right in assuming that this has to do with non-ASCII PWs? I thought ASCII times were gone given the remarkable language flexibility of Mac OS over the years. I know this stupid problem only from Win XP. There it is even worse.
    Is there a way to overcome this problem without always temporarily changing my PW? Thanks.

    I think the problem is with the applications themselves and should be reported to the developer. Although some non-ASCII characters are acceptable for an admin password, in my experience most Unix systems don't like non-ASCII characters in passwords. It may be easier to avoid them if you can.
    OS X should simply request your admin password to shut down when another user account is open. An alert dialog usually appears warning that the other user is still logged in and giving you the option to log the other account out then shut down. But in my experience the only authorization needed is for your admin account.

  • Non ascii characters being sent from a parameter in a form

    Hi!
    I have seen many topics posted on passing non ascii characters through parameters from one servlet to another and converting them into whatever format is necessary.
    However, I have not seen anyone answer the following question. I have a jsp page (html) with the character encoding set to utf-8. The user inputs some data in to a text field which is inside a form. The data could be in non ascii characters such as hebrew or arabic. This form is then sent to another jsp where i try to retreive the data from teh text field. No matter what i do, i cannot get the data presented correctly. It is either question marks or other wierd symbols.
    I have tried every permetation of encoding of the actual html page, the ecoding of the string from request.getParameter etc but it still is not presented on the new html page correctly.
    Can anyone help??
    Spencer

    Ok, I solved the problem.
    I had to put at the top request.setCharacterEncoding("utf-8");

  • Problem with non-ASCII file name in content disposition header

    Hi All,
    I am facing some problems with the non-ASCII file name incase of content-disposition header. I read from the RFC 2183 that if the file name contains non-ASCII characters then the same should be encoded before sending to browser. I did the same but realized 2 problems:
    1. The name of the file is truncated in case the file name is slightly long for e.g. �����������j�b�g��������������������������.txt
    2. Also when the same file is opened in notepad, the title is showing encoded name %E6%9C%80%E4%B8%8A%E4%BD%8D.....
    Overall, I feel that the browser is not understanding or responding to the encoded header values.
    Is there any solution to this problem? I am using Microsoft IE 6.0.
    The code snippet is given below:
    protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse resp) throws ServletException, IOException {
              String fileName = "�����������j�b�g��������������������������.txt";          
              fileName = URLEncoder.encode(fileName, "UTF-8");
              resp.setCharacterEncoding("UTF-8");
              resp.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=\"" + fileName + "\"");
              resp.setContentType("application/download-binary");
              String s = "This is inside txt file";
              resp.getOutputStream().write(s.getBytes("UTF-8"));
              return;
         }Any help or pointer would be highly appreciated.
    Thanks and Regards,
    Ashish

    The MIME standards for non-ASCII filenames are not widely implemented.
    Many mailers use an ad hoc method for encoding filenames. JavaMail
    supports both methods, but you need to set properties, such as the
    mail.mime.encodefilename property. See the JavaMail javadocs for
    the javax.mail.internet package.
