If your DBF file is part of a shapefile, then you will need a codepage file to correctly interpret any Unicode strings. If your shapefile root name is "xyz" then create a text file xyz.cpg with the contents "UTF-8" (not quoted) and hopefully that will work for you.
Thanks a lot. but I can't understand when the .cpg file reads.
The java app that I am working is an internal app that convert the shape(shp,shx,dbf) to gml3.2.1.
Only ESRI applications or SDK's will understand the CPG file, you may have to handle the Unicode encoding yourself in another environment.
Thanks a lot..
I just thinking that there is an available api from esri to read the dbf correctly.
