6.0 Globalization

The webMethods Enterprise JavaBeans Adapter conforms to the international standards of webMethods, which require: operation in any country, locale, or language configuration as listed in the webMethods Installation Guide; support for character encodings; and proper formatting, display, and validation of data (such as number and date formats). These features have been tested in this release and any known issues are listed below.

6.1 Localization and Certification

The webMethods Enterprise JavaBeans Adapter is provided with an English user interface, messages, and documentation. The webMethods Enterprise JavaBeans Adapter supports simultaneous multi-locale operation.

The webMethods Enterprise JavaBeans Adapter was tested with non-ASCII data using various Unicode and non-Unicode encodings. It was tested in common European and Far East Asian locales and is supported for operation in any locale provided by your operating environment. The tested environments included Japanese Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition and French Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional.

Please note that this version of the product has not been tested using localized versions of EJB application servers. Actual certification with the non-English EJB application servers has not been completed and this adapter may not function properly with different language versions.

6.2 Configuration

If you expect to display non-English data in your webMethods tools, make sure an appropriate font is installed in your operating environment. If you see hollow boxes or black squares where you expect to see non-English data, modify your JRE font.properties file to reference an appropriate font. For information on modifying your font.properties file, go to Sun's Java website. For instructions, see:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/intl/fontprop.html

http://www.unicode.org/help/display_problems.html

The configuration of the database you use with webMethods Enterprise JavaBeans Adapter affects the characters the database can contain. If you select a non-Unicode encoding for the database, characters from outside that encoding will be lost when you store data in the database. webMethods recommends that you use the most appropriate Unicode encoding for your database character set. See the webMethods Installation Guide on the webMethods Bookshelf and your database vendor's documentation for instructions on choosing and setting the character encoding for your database and environment.

6.3 Known Globalization Issues

None.
