Enabling code set support for Enterprise Server

The table within Supported country codes shows the in-built support for various EBCDIC code sets. Use the following instructions to configure your IDE to build your EBCDIC projects with the required code set support, and to configure your enterprise server regions to support the code set translations.

  1. Configure the enterprise server region to use a particular EBCDIC code set:
    1. Click Edit to the left of the appropriate server.
    2. Select Server > Properties > General.
    3. In the Configuration Information section, ensure there is a heading entitled [ES Environment], and then within it, type MFCODESET=xxxx[yyyy]. For xxxx[yyyy], refer to The code set translation environment variable.
    4. Click OK.
  2. Start or restart the server.

    When the server is running, you can connect your terminals emulator to the server, and as long as it supports the corresponding EBCDIC CSSID, you can run the application with your chosen code set support.
