Java (EJB), Language other than English , and MySQL

I am very new to MySQL, so please forgive me if there is something very obvious that I am doing wrong.
I am using MySQL 4.1 as the DB server for my EJB application.
I am using JBoss 4.0.2 as the application server.
I've used the "MySQL Server Instance Config Wizard" to configure MySQL to use UTF8 as the default character set (since I want to use hebrew).
I've created a table like this:

create table my_tb (
myID varchar(10) not null,
myStr varchar(10),
primary key(myID)
) engine=INNODB default charset=hebrew;

In my EJB application, I've created an entity bean which simply populates myStr column with some hebrew text.
My problem is that I keep getting the text in myStr column as question marks (i.e., '??????').

Has anyone has any ideas?

I would appreciate any help...

Kind Regards,


There is nothing wrong with the coding of the bean, the deployment descriptor, etc. - if I use English text then everything is OK.
