JBASE_LOCALE

Description

This environment variable sets the locale for UTF8, sorting and data collation sequences. It is required for use with Internationalization and should also be set when using jBASE Secondary Indexes.

Values

Any valid locale. Use the jlocales command for a list of supported  locales.


Default

None.


Setting     

Normal environment variable, so it can be set at any time by the commands:

Unix

export JBASE_LOCALE=en_US

Windows

set JBASE_LOCALE=en_US


Note: 

It is a common misconception that a locale of C is the same as  en_US. If a system defaults to a locale of C then it should be explicitly set system-wide to a value of en_US.
