If there is no requirement that string field must always give correct value - then it might work.
Or you may *pretend* that each byte pair constitutes UTF-16 char / binary buffer already contain UTF-16 string.
Since UTF-16 is not fixed char length, this has a potential to length errors of different kinds.
Since i don't know JDBC, i can't say if String Field would allow other types of access than AsString. Can one get is as raw byte array or not ?
