Establish a database connection

To establish a database connection, the GLS locales performs a series of steps.

When a client application requests a connection to a database, the database server uses GLS locales to perform the following steps:
  1. Examine the client locale information that the client passes.
  2. Verify that it can establish a connection between the client application and the database that it requested.
  3. Determine the server-processing locale, which the database server uses to handle locale-specific information for the connection.
