Within the IMS database, any form of data can be stored. Beware, however,
that certain parameters, such as the transaction name, must always be in
EBCDIC. While the database itself can handle Unicode in any format, you
have to be careful about how you work with that data - the IMS Transaction
Manager cannot handle Unicode. No 3270-based product can work with
Unicode unless it is in the UTF-EBCDIC format. IMS shipped support for
Unicode in V7, October 2000, to support working with Unicode using Java and
IMS Connect.
