The application server should be configured to use the same locale or encoding as the database and the JavaTM Virtual Machine (JVMTM).
Inconsistent encodings may introduce certain globalization issues, such as incorrect handlings of multibyte characters. In globalized environments, UTF-8 should be implemented on all products.
Refer to your application server documentation for information about setting the locale/encoding. Also, when loading or unloading data via CSV or XML files, ensure that their encodings are consistent with Identity Manager’s deployment environment encoding to retain data integrity. For enabling localization support see Enabling Language Support.
