    unable to read data from database

    I wanted to read data from oracle objects for which Iam using Jpublisher to generate the file. But when i execute the character data is not diplayed while the numric data is displayed properly. I am reading the data as a String but when i display the data it is simple HEX CODE. Pls help in this.
    here is the code
    import java.sql.SQLException;
    import java.sql.Connection;
    import oracle.jdbc.OracleTypes;
    import oracle.sql.ORAData;
    import oracle.sql.ORADataFactory;
    import oracle.sql.Datum;
    import oracle.sql.STRUCT;
    import oracle.jpub.runtime.MutableStruct;

    public class OBJ_TYPE_CITY implements ORAData, ORADataFactory
    public static final String _SQL_NAME = "SCOTT.OBJ_TYPE_CITY";
    public static final int _SQL_TYPECODE = OracleTypes.STRUCT;

    protected MutableStruct _struct;

    private static int[] _sqlType = { 12,12,12,2 };
    private static ORADataFactory[] _factory = new ORADataFactory[4];
    protected static final OBJ_TYPE_CITY _OBJ_TYPE_CITYFactory = new OBJ_TYPE_CITY(false);

    public static ORADataFactory getORADataFactory()
    { return _OBJ_TYPE_CITYFactory; }
    /* constructor */
    protected OBJ_TYPE_CITY(boolean init)
    { if(init) _struct = new MutableStruct(new Object[4], _sqlType, _factory); }
    public OBJ_TYPE_CITY()
    { this(true); }
    public OBJ_TYPE_CITY(String name, String province, String cityCode, java.math.BigDecimal populationDensity) throws SQLException
    { this(true);

    /* ORAData interface */
    public Datum toDatum(Connection c) throws SQLException
    return _struct.toDatum(c, _SQL_NAME);

    /* ORADataFactory interface */
    public ORAData create(Datum d, int sqlType) throws SQLException
    { return create(null, d, sqlType); }
    protected ORAData create(OBJ_TYPE_CITY o, Datum d, int sqlType) throws SQLException
    if (d == null) return null;
    if (o == null) o = new OBJ_TYPE_CITY(false);
    o._struct = new MutableStruct((STRUCT) d, _sqlType, _factory);
    return o;
    /* accessor methods */
    public String getName() throws SQLException
    { return (String) _struct.getAttribute(0); }

    public void setName(String name) throws SQLException
    { _struct.setAttribute(0, name); }

    public String getProvince() throws SQLException
    { return (String) _struct.getAttribute(1); }

    public void setProvince(String province) throws SQLException
    { _struct.setAttribute(1, province); }

    public String getCityCode() throws SQLException
    { return (String) _struct.getAttribute(2); }

    public void setCityCode(String cityCode) throws SQLException
    { _struct.setAttribute(2, cityCode); }

    public java.math.BigDecimal getPopulationDensity() throws SQLException
    { return (java.math.BigDecimal) _struct.getAttribute(3); }

    public void setPopulationDensity(java.math.BigDecimal populationDensity) throws SQLException
    { _struct.setAttribute(3, populationDensity); }

    public String toString()
    { try {
    return "SCOTT.OBJ_TYPE_CITY" + "(" +
    ((getName()==null)?"null": "'"+getName()+"'" ) + "," +
    ((getProvince()==null)?"null": "'"+getProvince()+"'" ) + "," +
    ((getCityCode()==null)?"null": "'"+getCityCode()+"'" ) + "," +
    getPopulationDensity() +
    } catch (Exception e) { return e.toString(); }


    the program which uses the above code is:

    prop.put(key, bundle.getObject(key));
    return prop;

    Can you elaborate on the problem? Are you getting errors or what?

    I got that.... as i forgot to include nls_charset12.jar in my classpath because of which iam unable to retrieve character data.
    But now i have a new problem....
    Iam calling a stored procedure using CallableStatement through Java. The procedure returns an object as out parameter.
    iam trying to retrieve that using
    CallableStatement cstmt;
    then after executing the procedure...
    cstmt = connection.prepareCall("{ call p_sm_api.createServiceOrder(?,?,?,?)}");
    and trying to retrieving it like
    CallStatus status = (CallStatus)cstmt.getObject(4);
    //Callstatus is the object which the procedure returns.

    but iam getting error as
    java.sql.SQLException: Invalid column type

    Exception: java.sql.SQLException: Invalid column type
    can you provide a solution to this.
    or let me know how to retrieve objects returned by procedures as out parameter with an example.
    Many thanks in advance....
