How to deal with fields with Chinese characters?



   I'm using jaspersoft aws product hourly edition recently. My mysql database has a table with Chinese-character columns. When I create a ad hoc view with the data source, the log shows that the chinese characters are decoded wrong. Does anyone know how to deal with it ?


  Thanks a lot.

1 Answer:


Jaspersoft AWS needs to add Chinese fonts to their installation. You'll need to contact Jaspersoft Admin to get it done.

However, if you are on a hourly license, they don't provide support. Which probably means you should cancel the service.
