Parameter

Description

Two character name that represents the
language for a specific locale, for example “en” for
English.

territory

Two character name that represents the
cultural conventions for a specific territory, for example “AU” for
Australia.

codeset

Name of the code set that the locale
supports, for example “utf8.”

Default

Based on the operating system’s locale.

Usage

The I10 native interface uses the Informix GLS (Global Language
Support) API for global language support. Client_Locale
specifies the value of the Informix environment variable CLIENT_LOCALE.
The I10 interface uses this setting to access string data in an
Informix database and to process SQL statements. If you do not set
the DbParameter, the default client locale value is based on the
OS locale.

For example, to access a database that has a Japanese SJIS
locale, Client_Locale should be set to ja_jp.sjis on
the client system.

For more information about the Informix CLIENT_LOCALE
and DB_LOCALE environment variables, see the IBM
Informix GLS User’s Guide
, currently available
at the Informix library Web site
.

    Settings page in the Database Profile Setup dialog box:
