Problem with special characters from database

2003-10-23 01:52


I need to display '‰' (e.g. 2.2‰) in a report (pdf report) but jasperreport is ignoring the '‰' character (only displaying 2.2).


The '‰' displays correctly when I put manualy, i.e:


<textFieldExpression class="java.lang.String"><![CDATA["2.2‰"]]></textFieldExpression>


But doesn't display when I retrieve data from database, i.e.:

<textFieldExpression class="java.lang.String"><![CDATA[$F{data}]]></textFieldExpression>


I thought the problem was with the JDBC driver but the data ($F{data}) displays correcly (with the '‰') in data retrieved and displayed in a browser.



The xml file has encoding="UTF-8".


Please help.
