I have :

*Oracle 9i DB using AR8MSWIN1256 Arabic character set , AL16UTF16 for NLS
*Tomcat 4.1.27 as application server
*JDBC for connectivity - Thin Driver
*JDK - SUN 1.4.2 ( Latest )
*Macromedia Dreamweaver MX for JSP development
*UTF-8 for HTML tags ( to see Arabic )
*UTF-8 for JSP encoding

Problem is:
when I insert any Arabic charactes to the database , it is saved like Junk
despite that Arabic charaters are Showing good on the web page and inside fields when entered

I have concerns regarding my JDBC conversion layers despite that I use
UTF-8 for all

Any help

Thank You
