Database Connectors
Some database and database server installations require that Unicode properties be set during initial installation. Subsequent databases that are created are sometimes limited to the Unicode or encoding properties that may not have been properly configured during the server install. For this reason, it is important to read the software manufacturer information for how to set up Unicode database server installations and subsequent databases.
ODBC driver support - Use an ODBC driver that supports Unicode.
Oracle connector - See Encoding and Oracle Databases.
Sybase connector
SQL Server connector - Set the encoding to UTF-8 and use the Unicode data types, such as nchar, nvarchar, unichar, univarchar, nclob, and nvarchar2.
