F.2. Character Sets in Database and Tungsten Replication
Character sets within the databases and within the configuration for Java
and the wrappers for Tungsten Replication must match to enable the information to
be extracted and viewed.
For example, if you are extracting with the UTF-8 character set, the data
must be applied to the target database using the same character set. In
addition, the Tungsten Replicator should be configured with a corresponding
matching character set. For installations where replication is between
identical database flavours (for example, MySQL or MySQL) no explicit
setting should be made. For heterogeneous deployments, the character set
should be set explicitly.
When installing and using Tungsten Replication, be aware of the following aspects
when using character sets:
When installing Tungsten Replication, use the
tpm to configure the character set.
When using the thl command, the character set may
need to be explicitly stated to view the content correctly:
thl list -charset utf8
