Parsing German and french characters

Hi All

In my code I have a requirement of transformation involving two databases on the source and destination respectively.

  1. What do I need to do if the databae has german or french characters???
  2. Will webMethods parse it properly or do we need to do any settings for the parsing of special characters in the german or french language???

The encoding you use in your code is the key.
For French or German, you can use either UTF-8 or ISO-8859-1. both will work. I prefer to use UTF-8 since it supports all other languages too.

when you hanle string in the flow service, consistently use UTF-8 (or the other one you choose).
When you retrieve data from DB, make sure you know the encoding it’s in, if needed, you may write some java code to convert it to UTF-8 first.
