 Java and UTF-8 - Chars or Graphics

We have a UTF-8 database (AIX UDB v7.1) and want to support DBCS languages
(Chinese, Thai, etc.) as well as English.  We are successfuly storing and
retrieving DBCS data through our IBM Websphere Java web application in both
CHAR and GRAPHIC fields.  
1. What are the advantages/disadvantages of using one of these datatypes
(or their VAR equivalents) over the other?
2. Are there performance gains to be had in using one datatype over the other?
3. Are there any rules of thumb for when to use one over the other?
4. Are there any data access/migration issues (moving data to another codepage
or accessing data by a non-Java application)?
5. Are there any rules of thumb for when to use the VAR equivalents?

Thanks,
Fred
