    Hi,

    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
    something like:

    <% 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.
