RE: InstantDB: from taiwan


Keith,

This may be a little off-topic for the InstantDB list, but I'll keep it
brief.  :-)  There really isn't much code to it.  You need to pass in the
encoding you want to the constructor of the InputStreamReader (or sub-class)
you are using.  Here are some links to help: one to a list of encodings, the
other to the Java Tutorial trail about this.

Dan,

Is this code something you feel is of sufficient usefulness to share as an
upload to the community??

Hello,

Since InstantDB stores Unicode Java characters, you will probably need to
convert from Big5 to Unicode in order to store them in the database (maybe
the IDB authors will know more).  At my company, we've successfully done the
conversion using Java's ability to read a file in the Big5 encoding and
translate the characters to Unicode.  Of course, you would then have to
convert them back to Big5 when you wanted to use them.
