Sort order (also called collation sequence) is specified during the initial installation of a database and defines the way in which the database sorts character data when executing queries. Sort order support depends on both the code page of the database and whether it is used in a development or a production environment:
The settings for binary sort order are unique for each database platform. See Siebel System Requirements and Supported Platforms on Oracle Technology Network to determine supported settings for your database platform.
If your deployment requires that you use a nonbinary sort order (for example, if your local language does not use binary sort order), you must consider several functional limitations that particularly affect development environment upgrades. If these limitations are unacceptable, consider re-creating your database to use binary sort order. However, be aware of these considerations:
