SQLException: Non supported character set: oracle-character-set-178

Hello,
I run a j2ee application on the Sun J2EE Application server.
I migrated to 0racle 9.2.0.3.
I have an ejb making a connexion with the oci driver
and in it I manipulate XMLType:
PreparedStatement pst = cnx.prepareStatement(sql);
XMLType xt = XMLType.createXML(cnx, "<ENTETE></ENTETE>");
pst.setObject(1, xt);
I've got an exception on the setObject method :
java.sql.SQLException: Non supported character set: oracle-character-set-178
at oracle.gss.util.NLSError.throwSQLException(NLSError.java:46)

atement.java:3208)
I have the nsl_charset12.zip , ojdbc14.jar,xdb.jar,xmlparserv2.jar in the J2EE_CLASSPATH of my server.
Does any one have an idea.
Thanks , Edwige

(*bump*)
Almost the exact same problem here...
"conn" is an object of type OracleConnection
"cst" is an object of type "CallableStatement"
"xml" is a String holding a well-formed XML document (say, "<foo><bar>value</bar></foo>")
XMLType xt = XMLType.createXML(conn, xml);
cst.setObject(1, xt); // BOOM! Non supported character set: oracle-character-set-178
Other relevant details:
Using the 9.2.0.3 JDBC thin client (ojdbc14.jar)
Using the newest nls_charset12.zip (in the 9.2.0.3 download section under the "1.2/1.3" heading.
JDK1.4.1_03 (04?)
Oracle itself is 9.2.0.3
database charset is 'WE8MSWIN1252' (yeah, I fought with the DBA and lobbied for UTF-8, but obviously he won that battle... sigh...)
Also relevant... prior to a few days ago, it worked. Then, the DBA did an upgrade and the charset errors began. It's hard to get a straight answer from him because his English isn't very good, but my guess is that he updated it from 9.2.0.1 to 9.2.0.3.

    Check your CLASSPATH enviroment variable. Try to add something like c:\Ora10g\jlib\orai18n.jar.
    From "JDBC Developer’s Guide and Reference":
    orai18n.jar
    Contains classes for globalization and multibyte character sets support
    This solved the same error in my case.

    yupp finally i got the solution. . .
    I was using connection from tomcat connection pooling.
    Hence, even though i was setting the classes12.jar and nls_charset12.jar in the classpath and compiling, -In runtime tomcat was using its own classes in the common/lib folder. . .(which might not support oracle-character-set-178.)
    So just added this jars into the common/lib of tomcat instead of web-inf/lib of my project
    and things began working. . .
    Thanks for the hint jshell. . .

    I am not an expert here,
    but it seems that since you are using ojdbc14.jar you may actually need the
    nls_charset12.jar
    instead of the one I suggested previously.

  • SQLException :  Non supported character set

    I'm trying to use customized type mapping with JDBC and something doesn't work.
    here is a sample code:
    Connection con;
    String spec = "{? = call listUzivatele()}";
    CallableStatement cstmt = con.prepareCall(spec);
    cstmt.registerOutParameter(1, Types.ARRAY, "ARCH_L.SEZNAM_UZIVATELU_T");
    cstmt.executeUpdate();
    Map map = con.getTypeMap();
    map.put("ARCH_L.UZIVATEL_T",Class.forName("uziv"));
    Object[] pole = (Object[])cstmt.getArray(1).getArray();
    after the last statement I'm getting SQLException:
    Non supported character set: oracle-character-set-170
    without setting type mapping for "ARCH_L.UZIVATEL_T" code works.

    here is the answer - put nls_charset12.zip into your classpath

    public static void readXML(String strXML,String strTable)
    // code here
    when i am creating above program from sql prompt, it works fine.
    but when i am creting that from java program, it is giving me exception.

    strQuery += "\n ";

  • Non supported character set: oracle-character-set-178

    Hi All.
    I have a WebService deployed in JBoss server in the HP Unix environment. When it accesses my Oracle Database (the database is in another Windows system), I get this error. My DB NLS details :
    NLS_CHARACTERSET : WE8MSWIN1252
    NLS_NCHAR_CHARACTERSET: AL16UTF16
    Should I change the charset here or should I change it in the client? Any help on how to change the charset is a welcome for me.
    Note that I have included the nls_charset12.jar and ojdbc14.jar in the classpath of my application. I have been told that this is an error that an Oracle forum can reply to and hence posting it here.
    Thank you.

    Perhaps you are mixing client jdbc files. For globalization support, you should use orai18n.jar with odbc14.jar (and a 1.4+ Java VM).
    What versions do you have for JDK, Oracle Client/JDBC and Oracle Server?
    Downloads and Oracle JDBC FAQ.

  • Getting "Non supported character set: oracle-character-set-178" exception

    Hi,
    I am using Struts,spring,hibernate and database oracle 9i.
    There are 2 modules developed by 2 units, both uses different versions of Spring and hibernate.As well one uses stored procedures and one uses prepared statements.
    I am integrating both units together.
    Unit A :-
    ojdbc14.jar,hibernate3.jar and nls_charset12.jar
    Unit B:
    hibernate2.jar,ojdbc14_g-9.2.0.5.jar (means 9.2.0.5 version) or patch which has solutions for prepared statement bug in ojdbc14.jar , nls_charset12.jar
    So my unit B works fine if i used latest version jars and nls_charset12.jar, but unit A fails in (at oracle.jdbc.oracore.OracleTypeCHAR.toDatum).
    I placed nls_charset12.zip also but still same error. Can you please tell me whether there is any jar conflict or any of the spring/hibernate jar contains implementation which is clashing.
    Thanks and Regds.

    Sudarshan,
    Perhaps you need to use "orai18n.jar" instead of "nls_charset12.jar"? The Oracle JDBC FAQ has more details.
    Good Luck,
    Avi.

  • Non supported character set: ...

    Hi,
    I'm sure I have a well known problem. When trying to post a new row to my DB (Oracle 9i Rel. 2) a java.sql.SQLException is thrown with the message Non supported character set: oracle-character-set-178
    What I did to fix this error is:
    - checked if nls_charset12.jar is in the classpath (it is)
    - tried thin instead of oci (the error is the same)
    - changed my NLS_LANG to ....UTF8 or ....WE8ISO8859P1 (didn't help also)
    Does anybody know something else what I can do?
    Thank you.
    Axel

    I found the solution myself.
    I had to use the classes12.jar (etc) shipped with JDeveloper. I replaced these some day because OCI access didn't work with these classes. But now it seems to work.

  • Non supported character set error

    Hello, I have a j2ee application that uses OLAP API to make queries against cubes created with cwm2 packages, in a database (db 1).
    I've replicated the schema in another db (db 2), importing the user (with a dmp file) and throwing the object creation scripts. This works right, and the objects in the catalog are all validated. But my j2ee application doesn't work against this new user; some errors appears.
    The two databases are the same version, the only difference is that db 2 was installed using WE8ISO8859P15 character set. Is there any problem with this set and the olap api ? The character set in db 1 is WE8ISO8859P1.
    The error is:
    "oracle.express.idl.util.OlapiException: Non supported character set: oracle-character-set-46".
    I'm using ojdbc14.zip and orai18n.zip in the WEB-INF/lib directory of my application. My database version is 10g r. 2 (10.2.0.1.0)
    Thanks by your reply.

    At what point does this error occur? Can you provide more of the stack trace?
