National Language Support
The following are upgrade considerations
and product changes for National Language Support:
- The default server
code page on Windows has been changed from code page 437 to code
page 1252, which conforms to the Microsoft default code page for
English and certain Western European languages.
- The language selection
list entries are displayed in the language they describe. This affects the
WebFOCUS sign-in page and the Dashboard language drop-down lists.
The language selection list entries in the Dynamic Language Switch
panel of the WebFOCUS Administration Console are displayed in the
session language. For example, if the Administration Console was launched
in French, then Dynamic Language Switch panel entries are displayed
- WebFOCUS Release
8.1 Version 05 uses Tomcat version 8. In Tomcat version 8, the default
URI encoding is UTF- 8. If you installed WebFOCUS Release 8.1 Version
05 with Tomcat version 8 and you want to use a Latin 1 client configuration,
you must change the URI encoding in Tomcat from UTF-8 to 8859-1
(Latin 1). Note that the Latin 1 configuration has a known limitation:
NLS characters are not supported in folder or file names for drill
down in HTML documents.
