Storing UTF-8 strings in MySQL Database

We have an endpoint ( A Servlet ) where a user can enter a multi-byte character. Now my question is do we have to make any changes to the MySQL Table, to store this multi-byte character

Question # 1) This is a Java program, and I beleive that Java characters are unicode by default. So can I write this unicode character in the mySQL table and this mySQL table has a field called VarChar, is this VarChar a unicode character.

Question # 2) Do we have to do some thing special to MySQL table inorder to store this multi-byte character ?. Also can we specifically store a UTF-8 character.

Thanks a bunch
