Unfortunately this is an area that I'm not very familiar with. I know
you'll need to specify the character set of your pages, which will
probably be ISO-2022-JP. You can specify this with a scriptlet
<% response.setHeader("Character-encoding","ISO-2022-JP"); %>
You'll need to do this at the top of the page, before any output. I'm
not certain that "Character-encoding" is the right header.
All the values that your Java code handles should be in Unicode.
Fortunately, Java has supported Unicode since the beginning. Oracle
also has Unicode support, you will just need to make sure all your
text fields are of type VARCHAR2 instead of VARCHAR. VARCHAR2
allocates two bytes for each character instead of one.
More information on internationalization issues on the web is
available from http://www.w3.org/International/O-charset.html, and
java.sun.com has a great deal of information on the
internationalization features built into Java.
