Unable to retrieve arabic characters from teradata database

We are able to connect to a Teradata DB using the JDBC adapters.

However, we are not able to parse any arabic content received on querying the teradata db.

Snapshots of the connection details and the arabic data received in the response, are attached.

Is there any special configuration required to handle the arabic characters from the teradata response?

Note: We are able to parse the arabic responses from the Oracle DB.

Thanks & Regards,
Anwit Daityari

Hi Anwit,

according to this article you have to add “CHARSET=UTF8” to the “Other Properties”-Field:


Hi Holger,
Thanks for providing the resolution.

I am able to retrieve arabic characters from the Teradata DB after setting the Charset property.
