Problems with activerecord/oracle addapter


#1

I am working on a project and we are having problems displaying utf8
charaters. my system specs & settings are:

this is what i did and the outputs of it form ruby script/console. why
is it doing this to me?

data = Data.find(391808)
=> #<Data sponsoring_unit: “Dusseldorf Germany” … >
In the database it is Düsseldorf Germany

data.sponsoring_unit = “Düsseldorf Germany”
=> “Düsseldorf Germany”

data.save
=> true

data = Data.find(391808)
=> #<Data sponsoring_unit: “D??sseldorf Germany” … >
