Future Directions on IBM eServer iSeries

Hi folks,

I'm just curious: is iSeries the only platform where database-tables have
to be converted to support GLS? I know, iSeries is the only platform that
works with EBCDIC instead of ASCII and so we need to convert to ASCII and
double-byte characters, but is UNICODE already used on the other platforms?

In the past, SAP had to fix some ABAP-codings because of the different
sort orders between EBCDIC and ASCII. I could imagine that some of these
programs have to be re-fixed to run correctly with ASCII-database-tables
on iSeries.

Kind regards,
Michael Rautenberg
