Korean language in Business Connector Developer


I am using SAP Business Connector 4.6 developer to create a new flow for an inbound XML document that will contain Korean Text (XML encoding EUC-KR).

I performed a quick test by bringing in the XML into a record structure, so that I could see if the Korean text came in, but I got a heap of boxes instead of the text when I look at the flow results in developer. I have the Korean language enabled on my PC, and this works for Word, Excel, outlook, SAP etc.

I can copy these boxes and paste them into Word and the text appears ok, but is there a way I can view the text within Business connector, and more importantly, will the text go through the business connector mapping ok without getting corrupted?

Thanks for your help.

Sorry. I missed that you were using 4.6. I assume there is a similar Globalization statement in the 4.6 (although I don’t know what bugs where fixed or limitations lifted between 4.6 and 6.1). The JRE font setup steps are the same.
