Issue 32045 — AS/400 CCSID 930 (Katakana) causes lowercase DLL function calls to fail
Status: Planned for resolution in 10.4.01
Solution available in patch(es): 10.3.02.024 9.7.05.037
Title: ------ AS/400 CCSID 930 (Katakana) causes lowercase DLL function calls to fail Environment: ------------ +Uniface Version : 10.3.02.xxx / 9.7.05.xxx +Operating System : AS/400 +Database : Any Summary: -------- When using CCSID 930 (Japanese) to execute a Uniface 10 job, it will fail with 'Could not load DLM API' followed by 'Unable to open IFS:liblssrv64.so;64; error Could not start PASE..' It appears that there is a license issue, however, this is not the case and is due to CCSID(930) having all lowercase characters at different codepoints than all other CCSID's. So when a function call is made to the DLM service program that will start the license check, the function name is incorrectly converted to EBCDIC, causing the entry point no to be found. This causes the job to fail. This occurs on 10.3.02.xxx. With 9.7.05.xxx it is not as bad since DLM is not dynamically loaded, but user 3GL is, so if user 3GL is used that contains functions with lowercase characters in them, these will fail to activate. Reproduction scenario for 10.3.02: --------------------- Make sure CCSID 930 is specfied in the compiled STARTUP and in usys.asn, $sys_charset Start urouter subsystem Expected Result: ---------------- Job will check out the appropriate license and execute as expected Actual Result: -------------- Job will fail and messages such as 'Could not load DLM API' and 'Unable to open IFS:liblssrv64.so;64' show up in the logging. Workaround: ----------- Avoid using CCSID 930, and use CCSID 939 instead.
User CCSID 939 instead
