getString returning hex escaped unicode for not latin characters

Hello peoples,

Im using Mysql (4.0.20-standard) to store internationalised (utf-8) text with no problems however I am having problems retrieving this information in java as it seems somewhere along the line when retrieving the information from the database that the string which is returned to java has been hexidecimally escaped... has anyone come across this before? Perhaps this is a feature that can be disabled?

A line of japanese text might come back from the database as a string such as


instead of the actual japanese binary characters which are stored


My problem is that when I pass these escaped characters through to an XML page they do not get passed through correctly as they must be escaped again in the form 関 which doesn't really work for my application.

If anyone could offer some guidance on this issue it would be greatly appreciated as Ive looked high and low for some documentation or other people with a similar issue but to no avail.
