[I18N] Need patch for JDK 1.1.3 to support JDBC-ODBC bridge via input parameters

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description


      JavaStudio 1.0 is released by using JDK 1.1.3. The database connectivity component using JDBC-ODBC bridge is working in C locale but not
      working in other locale due to Data sent to bridge via input parameter is
      not supported for conversion of international character set in JDK 1.1.3
      (It is fixed after JDK1.2 beta 2 according to the attached e-mail).

      Problem:
      The Data sent to the bridge via input parameters
      isn't converted in JDK1.1.3 hence "bind - "where" condition in SQL and
      insert won't work" with JavaStudio Japanese database or other non-C locale
      database.

      Request:
      We need the patch for JDK1.1.3 so that JavaStudio 1.0 Database
      connectivity component can work other non-C locale database by using
      JDBC-ODBC bridge for March 1998 release.

      It is highly appreciated and helpful to know the information about
      which area will be affected by this patch fix and how complicated ths fix is.

      [Note:]
      Engineers have tried to evaluate other 3rd party JDBC drivers with Japanese
      database, So far, there are limited driver can support for Japanese and
      most of them are not working reliably with JavaStudio (see attached result).
      Engineer is currently experimenting with weblogic-Oracle Japanese Database.


      Attached the following e-mail and 3rd-party JDBC driver with non-C locale
      database test result for your reference.

      Hi.
       
      Currently, the bridge does convert data being read from the database into the
      default local character set. Data sent to the bridge via input parameters
      isn't converted.
       
      We are working to include a version of the bridge in the
      JDK 1.2 beta2 release that has full support for international character
      sets.

      Weblogic 3.0 JDBC driver may works with Oracle Japanese database. We are
      still experimenting it.
