Storing and retrieving arabic in SQL Server 2000

hello, i realize this problem has been posted lots before but i read in the forum and i couldn't find a solution to fix my problem
i am developing a desktop application in java and sql server 2000, and i'm using JBuilder for writing my java codes
here's the problem
i can MANUALLY store arabic text in my database (directly in SQL Sever Query Analyzer) and can read it in arabic properly in SQL Server, but if i want to retrieve the arabic text in a query in JAVA, for example: select * from person i see weird characters (not question marks) but not the original arabic text
and if i type arabic text in a java textfield and use the value entered in an sql query, for example:
sqlQuery = "insert into person (fname) values ('" + jtfFName.getText() + "')";it is inserted in SQL Server as ?????s and when i retrieve the values from the table i also see it as ?????s
even when i converted all the data types in the database to unicode data types (*nchar* instead of char and nvarchar instead of varchar) and modified the sql query to the following:
sqlQuery = "insert into person (fname) values (N'" + jtfFName.getText() + "')";(N outside the single quotation mark since according to rules on msdn)
it still didn't solve the problem
please i need urgent help with this issue!

problem was solved by setting the charSet encoding to "UTF-8" in the connection to sql server using the jdbc-odbc bridge

  • Plz its URGENT : Storing unicode data in MS SQL Server 2000 through JSPs

    Hello All,
    I'm trying to store unicode data, entered from JSP page into the SQL Server. For that I've tried the following :
    1> I put tag -
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
    2> Also set in JSP tag -
    <%@page contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"%>
    But, still data is being entered in ISO-8859-1 format, don't know why. I tried with function for convertion - private String toUniCode(String strPar)-it successfully shows me the unicode data in alret msg, but it doesn't enters unicode data in SQL Server. In SQL Server only '??????' get entered. I kept data-type in SQL Server as nvarchar to store data in unicode.
    Would it be possible for me, to accept the data as UTF-8 itself & can I store it in SQL Server as it is? How can I do that? I'm accepting data in 'marathi' language.
    Plz, anybody Help me, I'm trying for this from around more than 1 week.
    Thanks in advance for any replies!

    Hello dmorris800,
    Thanx for your help. In fact I've tried lot many alternatives for that. Later I realised that it was problame of Driver, not of code. I was using jdbc:odbc driver which doesn't support unicode, or I don't know what was the problame with it.
    But I downloaded the driver named :'TaveConnect30C'. It is the connection optimised driver of Atinav.com This is the JDBC3 Type 4 Driver for MS SQL Server 6.5/7.0/2000 & trial version of which can be downloaded from http://www.atinav.com/download.htm
    It is really very good type-4 Driver.
    Cheers

  • JDBC to access SQL server 2000 and Oracle.

    hi,
    I have the following requirement. I have an oracle database which contain sql data including BLOB and CLOB. Firstly, I should migrate the data to a SQL server 2000 database. That is, i should be able to have two databases, one on oracle and the other on sql server 2000. the two databases should contain the same data, which includes BLOB data. I guess, sql server 2000 does not have a BLOB data type. What is the equivalent data type i can use to save the Oracle's BLOB data in SQL server?? Should it be image type?
    After i migrate the data to the sql server 2000 database, i should be able to connect to the two databases, oracle and sql server 2000, using the same JDBC code to retrieve, insert, update and delete the data. What are the drivers that i should use. I guess, the MS JDBC driver does not support BLOB and CLOB. Is there a driver that can support BLOB for sql server 2000 and is also free???!
    Kindly help... Thanks.
    Arthi.

    Hi,
    I am new to jdbc... so, pls forgive my ignorance...
    I shall try to map a BLOB data column in oracle to an IMAGE data column in sql server 2000. I am using oracle jdbc driver and microsoft's jdbc driver for connecting to the databases.
    My question is, can i use setBlob() method in the preparedstatement in jdbc code for setting data to the sql server 2000 image column?
    rs.getBlob() and preparedstatement.setBlob()code works fine for oralce's BLOB column using oracle's jdbc driver.... Will the same jdbc code work for sql server 2000's image column using microsoft's jdbc driver??
    Kindly help.

  • Can I pass an array as an input parameter for a stored procedure on SQL Server 2000

    I am trying to pass an array to a stored procedure residing on my SQL Server 2000 database server. Is this even possible? If it is possible, what is the syntax for this?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    I have passed arrays to and from a database using SQL and ActiveX, including to and from stored procedures, but I cannot recall the precise method used to do so. If memory serves, everything is in the form of a string. You need to do a lot of parsing and 'unparsing' to get this data into your stored procedure.
    You are left with a couple of options to get your data to the stored procedure. I recommend using SQL in LabVIEW wherever possible as it saves the amount of external code calls (and believe me, calling ActiveX procedures developed by someone else in Visual Basic is NOT much fun at all...). You can either send the array and other data to the stored procedure (you will find the syntax in the SQL references in LabVIEW help under SQL), or you can send
    the array to the database, and have the database then act upon the array.
    I strongly recommend making routines (subVIs) to handle these operations.
    Sorry I don't have the syntax, I don't have SQL installed on this machine. If you can't find the syntax in the help, please post here again.

  • Problem with Sensitive ResultSet in SQL Server 2000

    Hi,
    I am trying to use SCROLL_SENSITIVE and CONCUR_UPDATABLE ResultSet accessing SQL Server 2000. I am using JDK 1.3 and supported JDBC driver. When I tried to insert a row, I got the following message:
    sp_cursor: The cursor identifier value provided (0) is not valid
    Is there any setting in SQL Server that I need to configure or do I miss something in my code?
    Thanks,
    Andi Setiyadi
    Here are my codes:
    cs = connection.prepareCall("{call sp_deptInfo (?,?,?)}", ResultSet.TYPE_SCROLL_INSENSITIVE, ResultSet.CONCUR_UPDATABLE);
    cs.setInt(1, 0);
    cs.setString(2, "");
    cs.setString(3, "name/orderbyid");
    rs = cs.executeQuery();
    rs.last();
    int rows = rs.getRow();
    rs.afterLast();
    rs.moveToInsertRow();
    rs.updateInt(1, rows + 1);
    rs.updateInt(2, Integer.parseInt(parentDept));
    rs.updateString(3, newDept);
    rs.updateInt(4, 1);
    rs.insertRow();

    I am getting the resultset by calling a stored procedure. I am not changing the stored procedure itself.Database drivers create 'connections' and 'statements' which match the SQL that you pass it. You are passing it a stored proc. The only information that it has is on a stored proc. It doesn't matter where the stored proc got its info from. The stored proc doesn't return tables and indexes into tables. It returns a result set (that is what your code suggests.) That is all the information that the driver has.
    Consider your stored proc might return this
    select * from mytable where ....
    But it could also do this
    select 'value1', 'value2', ... from dual
    On the java side it isn't not going to know which of the above that you did. Nor should it. And you can't update/insert into that second example.
    Or at least that is how I look at it.
    Your code looks like it is trying to 'update' the result set that a stored proc returned. And I simply don't see how that is possible. Or even why anyone would want to do it.

  • Problem of loading the Driver of MS SQL Server 2000

    Is there anyone in the Sun Forum who will help me?
    I have already tried to give the full class path of .jar files to the System and User Variables but received the same error. I am doing BCA and developing my very first Project on Java.
    Please, tell me one thing. When I had installed MS SQL Server 2000 at my system first time then the 3 JAR files were present in the lib folder and all my codings of connectivity were working properly. Then due to some reasons, I had to format C drive and installed the MS SQL Server 2000 again then in the lib folder the 3 JAR files were not there. How it has happened? Then, I installed the downloaded driver of MS SQL Server 2000 for JDBC 1.4 then the JAR files were installed in the related downloaded driver folder. I manually copied them to the lib folder of MS SQL Server and gave that path to the Classpath of System and User Variables, but it didn't work.
    I am not understanding the reason that The Software which worked previously is not working correctly in second time of installing.
    I am using command line to develop my stand-alone project. Please help me.

    I have really no idea what in earth "the same error" is which you're talking about. Be specific. Post the exception type, message and stacktrace.

    Don't bother with the System CLASSPATH, more often than not, it is not even used.
    When running from an IDE, set the project's library preferences.
    When running from a web container/application server configure the applications libraries in the server/container, see it's documentation.

  • [SQL SERVER 2000] Generic table exporter

    Hello every body.
    First of all sorry for my bad english but I'm french ;-)
    My internship consits into making a generic table exporter (with a table list). Export into csv files.
    I have tried 2 solutions :
    1 - Create a DTS with a Dynamic Properties Task. The problem is I can easily change the destination file but when I change the table source I don't know how to remap the transformations between source and destination (do you see what I mean ?). Any idea ?
    2 - Use the bcp command. Very simple but how to do when tables contains the separator caracter ? for example : If a table line is "toto" | "I am , very happy" --> the csv file will look like this : toto, I am , very happy --> problem to get back the data ( to much comma ).
    Does someone has a solution ?
    Last point is how to export the table structure ? For the moment, using the table structure, I generate an sql query which creates a table (I write this query in a file). Isn't there any "cleaner" solution ?
    Thanks in advance and have a nice day all

    Answers,
    1. Use ActiveX script to transform. Refer

    2. Replace the pipe delimiter first with comma if it is a single column and use bcp command. Refer

    Hi,
    You have two options, you can use DB Connect but you need SAP DBSL for SQL Server 2000 and the DB Client and this could be have a additional cost, or you can use UD Connect, that make the connection with Java, using JCo's and the Driver Java for SQL Server 2000, please review this link: [http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/58f4db47-0501-0010-a2bf-ff01b150fdff|http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/58f4db47-0501-0010-a2bf-ff01b150fdff]
    I recomend if you dont have the SAP DBSL and DB Client for SQL Server 2000 that use UD Connect is really useful.

  • SQL Server 2000.

    Hi,
    I have 2 systems in network. In one system my Application will be running and in another System, SQL Server 2000. Application will be the only System which will be connecting to Database System. I mean it will be just one time installation and I have Windows 2000 Server in my both systems.
    Now can u please tell me, do i need to install SQL client in my application system to connect to database and if so, which driver will be suitable to my requirement and what the string i have to pass to connect to database.
    with regards,
    Shahnaz.

    Cheers Shaan,
    do i need to install SQL client in my application system to connect to database . If u use a type4 jdbc driver, u need not have to install anything but the driver itself.. it connects directly to SQL 2000 server.. other methods.. jdbc-odbc bridge, odbc etc needs client machine to have particular software installed and configured.
    if so, which driver will be suitable to my requirement . any jdbc type 4 diver for SQL Server 2000 will suit ur needs i hope..(u havenot told us what application u ar gonna use...) u may get a list from http://industry.java.sun.com/products/jdbc/drivers
    what the string i have to pass to connect to database.. connection string of the type jdbc:subprotocol:datasourcedetails.. you 'll get help from http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/jdbc/basics/connecting.html
    anyway FYI i quote from that page..
    " If you are using a JDBC driver developed by a third party, the documentation will tell you what subprotocol to use, that is, what to put after jdbc: in the JDBC URL. For example, if the driver developer has registered the name acme as the subprotocol, the first and second parts of the JDBC URL will be jdbc:acme: . The driver documentation will also give you guidelines for the rest of the JDBC URL. This last part of the JDBC URL supplies information for identifying the data source. "
    hope that was helpful,

  • SQL Server 2000 64-bit: x64-bit edition vs IA64 Itanium processor ?

    Hi Forum,
    I do need SQL Server 2000 64-bit. So, I have used our premium MSDN subscription, and I have downloaded:
    SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition - 64-bit (English)
    SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition - 64-bit (English)
    However, Our DBA specialist informed me that both packages are for the IA64 Itanium processor, and what we really need is for the
    x64-bit edition.
    Could you please help me out ?

    Hello,
    To my knowledge 64-bit version of SQL Server runs on Itanium and Tandem only. You have to install SQL Server 2000 32-bit on a 64-bit
    Windows operating system.
    Hope this helps.
