Actually, most of the big databases (Oracle, etc.) now support UTF-8
encoding. This is OK for storing static text, but if you are doing
anything complicated, the performace can be poor.
A better solution may be ADABAS D, from Software AG. This product stores
data in UCS-2, giving much better performance. It can read and
write data in other character sets like Big-5 (Chinese) and SJIS
(Japanese), doing on-the-fly conversion.
I have no connection with Software AG. I just liked the demo
I saw at the Unicode confrence in HK.
