simple entity with a String field plus according Control.
If you enter e.g. german special chars like "München" or "Hänsel" into the form field (no matter whether this is a update or create) and save the data, the value get's stored as "M?chen" or "H?sel" into the MySQL-Database. I searched for this issue and found some tipps at the following blogs.
I tested their suggestions by adding some parameters to the database.properties "database.url" entry. It currently looks the following:
I even tried to enter the url into the persistence.xml (see below) but neither of these things worked.
<property name="hibernate.connection.url" value="jdbc:mysql://localhost/my_utf_test?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=utf8&connectionCollation=utf8_general_ci&characterSetResults=utf8" />
This bug makes ROO+Hibernate actually unusable for german based applications for me at the moment.
Have you got any suggestions?
