Strings are converted going into and out of MySQL server from the client. In many situations, SET NAMES is required. One can hope (I don't know) that JDBC declares what the client encoding is (UCS-2?).

It is generally agreed that the 'best' all-around settings for multi-lingual MySQL is utf8, with utf8_unicode_ci (not utf8_general_ci).

If you are mono-lingual, other encodings and/or other collations may suit your application better.
