In DB2 for z/Os the received and sent Data are converted from EBCDIC to ASCII and back by using the SYSIBM.SYSSTRINGS.
What about DB2 UDB are there similar converting methods? The codepages used in UDB are all ASCII but there are national differences, e.g. between France and Germany, because in french we don't have umlauts.
How does the convertion work in UDB, if e.g. the german unlauts have different code points in the used ascii codepages?
