Changing job CCSID to 500 does not change character data by itself.
Where the data for data queue entry was coming from ?
It was coming from database file, it would be converted to 500 - if

It seems to be the case from what you say about Java side (I assume that
sending side is not Java). If data was not *really* in 500 but in default
CCSID, then when you create your AS400Text object with default CCSID, it
will be converted to Unicode correctly.
But when you create it with CCSID 500, it will be converted from CCSID 500
(which it is not). Hence the problem.
