I have an all CLI application for DB2 LUW. I want to communicate with CLI entirely in UTF-8 strings. This can be accomplished by setting the environment variable DB2CODEPAGE to 1208 however I might share the environment with other DB2 apps that would not tolerate this setting.

Is there any other way to set the application code page in DB2? I know that Oracle can do this (OCIEnvNlsCreate()).

Thanks,
David Kunkle
