Thanks, Barbara for that info. I'm more familiar with java on the zSeries
although I've used the iSeries as well. The JVMs on z used to be
initialized with the equivalent of file.encoding=EBCDIC meaning that all
data in and out of the JVM was assumed to be EBCDIC whereas internally it
was, of course, Unicode. That has since changed on the z. However, I
didn't know how file.encoding was initialized by a JVM started by either the
J2EE server in question or by RPG's EXTPROC(*JAVA) support. Now, I do.

Thanks again,

How is it getting in there? It's possible that RPG uses an EBCDIC JVM
your J2EE server uses an ASCII JVM. ...

I don't think there is such a thing as an EBCDIC JVM. If the RPG is
using RPG's EXTPROC(*JAVA) support, the RPG runtime would be handling
any necessary conversions between the RPG EBCDIC and the Java ASCII for
any character parameters or return values.
