Actually, I don't have a situation, per se.  I'm a teacher.  But my primary
goal these days is to get people up and running on thin client technology
with the minimum possible disruption to their legacy systems.  But a
secondary goal is to provide single-box e-business solutions; for that, I
can definitely use the unicode approach.  It's simply a matter of which
solution is needed.

But our goal (meaning my team, not
IBM's - I do not speak on behalf of IBM) is to provide the solutions that
make JDBC as fast as it can be.  Many of the customers we work with
regularly are buying boxes only to run Java/JDBC/Websites.  Others are
willing to have two full copies of their data (one in the traditional CCSID
and one in unicode).  This can make sense when you have a table of
reasonable size which is pretty stable but that can get queried constantly
(a product table for many companies).
In a hybrid situation such as the one you mention, I think it makes perfect
sense to go with a ghost table, perhaps maintained by a trigger on the
primary.  I'm not against any particular method (although if you've read
anything I've written, you might get the - correct - impression that I
don't advocate JDBC for transaction processing, for a whole host of

Clearly everyone has different needs.
