Well thanks for all your suggestions!!
I got a very very interesting bit of solution!!!???
We have a WIN2K box and an AIX(IBM-Unix) box. Now I has done something like
this in my code.
FileInputStream fis = new FileInputStream(filePath);
// ensuring that the feed of XML file is UFT-8 this is important I wonder
InputStreamReader isr = new InputStreamReader(fis,"UTF-8");
String s = isr.getEncoding();
Document doc = builder.build(isr);
Element root = doc.getRootElement();
bytes  b = root.getElement("xxxxxx").getText().getBytes();
//converting to ISO-8859-1
String s = new String(b,"ISO-8859-1");
Now when I saved this string to ORACLE database it worked perfect.
But that is not all of it. I workked fine on W2K and on AIX it still could
not handle the EURO() character.
Now this was intersting that both the JVMs ,that of W2K and AIX are handling
the situations in a different fashion.
Anyways I got a situation soleved for the moment but it would have been
better that I could have done it on AIX avaoiding me to have a workaround
and wrting a RMI call for this updation.
Thanks a lot and any suggestions for this kind of behavior will really help
