Is your Java session setting CCSID to the correct value?

This is not a terminal emulation session; nether is it a Java Toolbox or JDBC connection. This is a proprietary protocol that predates the Toolbox, and passes the raw record (as returned by _Rreadk, _Rreadd, and so forth, in the C runtime) to the Java client for processing.

At any rate, I have more information since the original post:

It seems that the old ThinView Swing client (from which the recalcitrant programs were derived) has no trouble at all displaying the Chinese characters properly, so long as either (a) I select one of the Java symbolic font names (e.g., "Dialog"), or (b) I run it on my Macintosh.

This suggests that it is indeed a matter of font rendering, and that the presence (implicit on the Mac) or absence (on the WinDoze XP box, unless it's explicitly installed) of "East Asian Language Support" is also a factor: the Firefox browser can render Chinese Unicode without requiring such support, and the Swing UI classes can do so if the Java "logical fonts" are used.

Unfortunately I don't know enough about the org.eclipse.swt UI classes to do anything about this myself.
