Error description

  • The Remote Systems LPEX Editor in Rational Developer for i (RDI)
    9.6 does not show the correct Unicode characters in the member
    when editing a QSYS source file member with a UTF-8 CCSID (CCSID
    1208).  It appears to have a problem with characters higher than
    0x00FF, or other than the Basic Latin (ASCII)  (0x0000 - 007F)
    and the Latin-1 Supplement (Extended ASCII) (0x0080 - 00FF)
    blocks.  These characters would be corrupted in the file when
    the editor content was saved to the source member.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Those using RDi to edit source file members with CCSID 1208  *
    * (UTF-8).                                                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Characters beyond the basic Latin set would be corrupted on  *
    * the member download and upload.                              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    The file member download and upload for editing also depends on
    the userâ ™s connection job CCSID and the character conversion
    would fail if that CCSID was not *HEX (= 65535).
