DB2 on z/OS 1.10 - unicode ?
Hello,
a bit off topic:

"Starting in z/OS® V1R7, the Unicode environment can be dynamically updated.
Callers can invoke Unicode services and the tables required for respective
service will be loaded as they are referenced. The operator can also update
the environment with the SETUNI command to add, delete, or replace tables."

Meaning that the operator is no more required to generate an initial UNI
image via CUNJIUTL job?

Regards, Nenad

Hi Nenad

When I was migrating from V7 to V8 I discovered it (we were in z/OS 1.9)..
Anyway we asked it to IBM support and we were told we had to build UNI
image.

Actually I'm not sure you have to do it, in our sandbox we had UNICODE
services even without building any UNI image, but we decided to follow
IBM's suggestions. Take a look in DB2-L archives, I sent a post about this
topic this year or last year.

Your MVS Sysprog should be able to verify that you have all the parts setup in PARMLIB and LINKLST to make this work. There has been a lot of discussion on this topic over in IBM-MAIN. If you search the IBM-Main archives you will be able to find the details on how this works.


Once it is setup, then the answer to your question should be YES.
