A GETFILE performed from the IBM i with files with special characters (Á, ó) and ANSI encoding are received from the Windows server without problems. However, when the files have UTF-8 (unicode) encoding, they arrive at the iSeries with two 2 null bytes instead of the special character.
Is there any way to correct this.
Release : 11.0
Component : XCOM Data Transport for AS/400 i5/OS
CA XCOM Data Transport for Windows 11.6, 12.0
Support for UTF-8 encoding is not yet available on XCOM for AS/400 (iSeries, IBM i)
Not at the current time. XCOM for iSeries does not currently support UTF-8 encoding. XCOM for Windows does, but you have to specify parameters designed for UTF-8. Both sides would have to have support for UTF_8 encoding.
