    Is that can be user interface ? Are should we install Eclipse stuff to have that worked, So I doubt it require more Tamil words to encrypted in database to work right as end level? looking forward …..

      You can make as user interface but not only with java, you can display the tamil characters in jsp/html pages but you need to convert to utf-8(to display tamil characters) in java only. You do not need to encrypt the tamil words in the database, you can simply install tamil fonts and converting to utf-8 make sense.
