Set a GLS locale

For the database server and the client application to communicate successfully, you must establish the appropriate GLS locales for your environment.

A GLS locale name identifies the language, territory, and code set that you want your HCL OneDB™ product to use. For the syntax of the components of locale names, see CLIENT_LOCALE environment variable.

HCL OneDB products use the locale name to find the corresponding locale files. A locale file is a runtime version of the locale information. The locale name must correspond to a GLS locale file in a subdirectory of the HCL OneDB installation directory (which ONEDB_HOME specifies) called gls. For more information about GLS locale files, see Manage GLS files.
