I was wondering what is the impact to use an Oracle database encoded
with UTF8 instead of AL32UTF8 as recommended on confluence
I read that the difference only shows up in characters beyond U+FFFF but
I have no idea what that means practically!
We have been running with this encoding for a couple of months and saw
no problems with French or Spanish characters. We don't have specific
plans for using Chinese or Arabic characters yet but I wonder if that
would be problematic using Oracle's UTF8 which apparently is not a true
Thanks for any information!
