Property Value

String that represents charset supported by PostgreSQL server.


By default, charset is equal to PostgreSQL server encoding run-time parameter. You can set this property to convert string data returned by the server to the specified charset used by your application. For example, if your database encoding is KOI8 but your application uses WIN1251 charset you can set this property to WIN to convert KOI8 strings to WIN1251. You also can use Unicode property to transfer all data in the UTF8 charset, but it may significant reduce network traffic and thus decrease application performance.
