I have a .NET based web-gis application, and in that application different users update layers (layers information are stored in SQL server).
When I generate shapefile from that layer in GeoServer from WFS Service and then open it in ArcMap, ArcMap does not display the Persian values at all; instead it displays "????????".
In geoserver store i have used "windows1256".
I have tried different charset but I did not get the correct shapefile.
