jBASE Locale Configuration

Locales can be configured for the user id via the JBASE_LOCALE environment variable.


Display a full list of available locales from the command line by the “jlocales” command.


Configured locales are only applicable when executing an application in international mode or the JBASE_I18N environment variable is configured. The locale is based on the underlying OS locale configuration and the configured locale for the user id has no effect. As configuration of the international mode is on an account basis, the state of international mode can change on execution of a LOGTO. If configuring an account with international mode ‘false’ then the JBASE_I18N environment variable will be unset as the result of the LOGTO.
