Yes, Cayenne UTF-8 handling is as good as the underlying JDBC driver  
and the database. If the database supports it, Cayenne will too.

It does work fairly with MySQL. There is a known issue with MySQL/ 
UTF-8 (mis)handling of German umlauts. In searches "รถ" is incorrectly  
matched when searching for "o", etc. The only way around that I found  
was to switch the DB back to latin1 and corresponding German  
collation. Nothing Cayenne related though.
