Could any body explain me the exact difference between these two fileds.
Exactly what is the difference between new Unicode String Field and new String Field in Enterpri ...
I didn’t know the answer to this one, so I checked with Google and found the following at the Schema Mania Web site:
I have always used UNICODE for my integrations because it is based in standards. I do not know which type uses more system resources or is more efficient.
You can read more about UNICODE at http://www.unicode.org/standard/WhatIsUnicode.html
In terms of java it’s exactly the same. The string field type only exists for backwards compatibility.
So if choosing string you are actualy manipulating unicode string anyway.
You should use the unicode string for new developments.
