Version 8.1 21 About Siebel EAI and Unicode Support A multilingual company that includes divisions in different countries who use different languages can use Unicode to deploy a single instance of a Siebel application release. However, this technique presents a unique integration challenge because the other systems in the multilingual IT landscape for the company might or might not allow Unicode. Unicode deployment modes that address this issue include: Unicode Siebel Server with Unicode database Unicode Siebel Server with traditional code page database For these deployment modes, integrating Siebel Business Applications with an external application might involve data replication, data sharing, or both data replication and data sharing. If the code page database is used, and if the code page of the external system matches the code page of the Siebel Database, then data replication is allowed. Exchanging Data Between Applications that use Different Code Pages If data is exchanged between applications that use different code pages, then the numeric representation of the code point for each character must be converted from the standard that is used by the source code page, into the equivalent character that is used by the destination code page. This conversion requirement is true when a character is converted from: Unicode to a traditional code page. For example, UTF-16 to Shift-JS. A traditional code page to Unicode. For example, Shift-JS to UTF-8. One type of Unicode to another type of Unicode. For example, UTF-8 to UCS-2. If there is no equivalent character in the destination code page, and if the conversion cannot be performed, then a conversion error is generated. Depending on the configuration, the conversion error might either terminate the current transaction, or the transaction might proceed by substituting replacement characters, as necessary, and ignoring the conversion error.

Overview: Siebel Enterprise Application Integration Version 8.1 Overview of Siebel EAI About Siebel EAI and Unicode Support 22 Figure 4 illustrates how Siebel EAI supports different adapters, such as COM and MQSeries, to integrate with an external application. Abilities inherent with each of these adapters include: Work with the character encoding, as specified in the picklist Perform conversion to or from the external encoding Handle conversion errors COM and Java Bean Unicode Protocols COM and Java Bean are Unicode protocols. The sender and the recipient are responsible for converting the character sets. For example, because interfaces for a Siebel application automatically handle the conversion, these protocols are not required to perform a conversion. Error handling is handled differently by these protocols when compared to the other adapters.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
