Language and character set issues are an important consideration in many replication sites. Each database and server in the system uses a specific collation (character set and sorting order) for storing and ordering strings. SQL Anywhere character set support is performed in a different manner to character set support in Adaptive Server Enterprise and other Open Client/Open Server based applications.
This section describes how to configure the SQL Anywhere LTM such that data in a SQL Anywhere database can be shared with Replication Server and hence with other databases.
The LTM automatically uses the default Open Client/Open Server language, sort order, and character set. You can override these defaults by adding entries to the LTM configuration file.
