In Thin Client

International character handling in thin client is similar to that in distributed processing. You create a simple text file that contains the mapping of characters that may be different on the client than on the server. Include only the character codes that differ between the two machines.

After you create your map file, you need to point to it using a runtime configuration variable. For a thin client environment, this variable is called TC_MAP_FILE. Character mapping is triggered by the presence of the TC_MAP_FILE variable.

You need to be sure that the configuration file that contains this variable is referenced in the program's alias definition. See Creating a Server Alias File in Thin Client for information about the thin client alias file.
