I have Hyper SQL database and I don't know what is current character set. Is it set for whole DB or it can be different for every table? How to evaluate encoding in my base?
HSQLDB stores text data as Unicode. You can verify that by opening the
.script file for the database and looking at the data.
For example, for a table with a row containing "Montréal" the
.script file contains
CREATE MEMORY TABLE PUBLIC.TABLE1(ID INTEGER PRIMARY KEY,TEXTCOL VARCHAR(50)) ... INSERT INTO TABLE1 VALUES(1,'Montr\u00e9al')
\u0039 is the Unicode code point for the letter
