I ve got a legacy oracle database in ISO-8859-1 encoding, which is in
use by other applications as well.
Now, I would like to add a rails app for new features. Rails is using
unicode so special characters are stored incorrectly in the database.
Does anybody know how I might fix that. I ve already told my
controllers to use that charset, but my models still store these
values as utf8 and that goes directly into the database.
Converting the whole database to unicode is not an option due to the
other legacy apps.
Hope anybody can help me.
thanks a lot in advance.
