I am attempting to make a Dictionary like software. The way this software will work is that You will be able to enter a word into a search bar, and the dictionary will search for the word. It will display the word, the pronunciation and the meaning of the word in the frame. I decided to use an Object Output Stream to read in the words (which will be saved whenever a new word is added). My problem occurs with the encoding used by the ObjectOutputStream when exporting the class. I am using Korean characters in my program, and these characters (when written and then read back in) appear as question marks. I am wondering if there is any way to change the encoding for the ObjectOutputStream. If anyone has any other solutions I will be glad to hear them.
Thanks for any help and suggestions.
