Subject: Unicde Encoding Scheme on AS/400
I am investigating the reliability of one communication project by using
MQSeries between Solaris and AS/400 to transmit unicode in ucs-2 or utf-8.
Whether ucs-2 or utf-8 is depedent upon how the web-application(CGI,
browser. Any advise here?
I have one concern:
Unicode seems to be very ascii like. For example, I have two characters in
0101,1010 110,00011 10,111000
(5A, ASCII for'Z') (sample utf-8 for 2 byte character)
The first character is ascii 'Z', I am not sure the second character, I just
pick it up as an example.
AS these two charaters are trnasmitted to the AS/400 platform, does that
mean it will be converted something like this:
1110,1001 110,00011 10,111000
(E9, EBCDIC for 'Z') (keep the same as above or ???)
Or I am totalloy got lost?
Is there any encoding standard of unicode based upon EBCDIC?
Looking forward to your response.
