I have a question regarding encoding setup for the MQ connection with the WebSphere MQ Adapter.
The default configuration is “00273 - Native”. The problem we are getting is that we are trying to send via MQ Slovakian special characters and some characters are lost in the transfer.
For example, we are sending the “ž” character. Before sending. the character code is correct and has the value “C5BE” (as per “Latin-1 Supplement” or “Latin Extended-A” character code set). After the MQ message is received and processed, the character code is “3F”.
We have checked the processing on both sides of the MQ and could not find any fault.
The question I have is where can I find more information about the MQ Encoding settings? I looked up the SAG documentation but that did not help (maybe I was looking in the wrong place - WebSphere_MQ_Adapter_Users_Guide.pdf)
Or, ideally, which MQ encoding setting should I use?
