Currently, the driver does little with Unicode. This is mainly because I
don't have much dealings with any other encodings than the standard, so
it's difficult to test.

I'm trying to find out how the JDBC driver handles different character
encodings, since i'll possibly need have strings in English, Swedish and
Chinese in the same database and the same Java VM.

Postgres seems to handle a lot of different charsets, both single- and
multi-byte. Java is all Unicode inside, so there shouldn't be a problem

I've been looking through the source of the JDBC2 driver, without
finding much mentioned about character encodings. Does the driver just
assume that both PostgreSQL and Java are running in the same locale,
with the same default character encoding?
