Re: UNICODE application on IBM Mainframe

I would like to add one item to this discussion:

Recently, someone from the IBM S/390 group told me that they had decided to store and use Unicode on S/390 as UTF-8/16/32.
They will not use UTF-EBCDIC. I am not aware of anyone inside or outside of IBM who does use UTF-EBCDIC. (There is another EBCDIC-friendly proposal out there in IBM that also does not seem to have been adopted.)

If the IMS DB is now updated to use Unicode, then it is probably as UTF-16, right?
