Hi all
I have been experiencing the character encoding issue when working with multilingual content. I was able to fix it by editing the jdbc url and adding in relevant connection properties like this :
db.url=jdbc:mysql://localhost/alfresco?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=utf-8
I've tested it with chinese, russion and arabic
I'm posting it here to make it easier for others to find

Hope this help
