PowerExchange Globalization Overview

PowerExchange Globalization Overview

PowerExchange supplies default code pages based on International Components for Unicode (ICU) open source software.
PowerExchange uses the following type of code page specification:
  • Default Code Pages
    . During PowerExchange installation, default code pages are installed in the installation directory for each PowerExchange system.
  • General Code Pages
    . PowerExchange uses the CODEPAGE statement in the DBMOVER configuration file to define the general code pages for transmitting or receiving data or metadata between systems.
  • Code Pages for Data Sources
    . Where possible, PowerExchange derives the code page of data from the database metadata. PowerExchange can use data source-specific configuration parameters to define the code pages for transmitting or receiving data or metadata between data sources.
  • User-Defined Code Pages
    . Where it is not possible to derive the required code pages, or where data is loaded in a different code page from that which the database metadata expects, you must explicitly define the code pages for the databases that you use.
When the PowerExchange Listener starts up, it reports the code pages being used.
