Hi there,
one of my colleagues has some trouble in getting XML documents converted correctly when sending them via MQ from OS/390 to a Sun Solaris box.
Most of the conversion issues have disappeared after I asked him to set mqmd.CodedCharSetId = 37 before MQPUTing the message. But he still gets .(snip). <]DOCTYPE .(snip). instead of .(snip).
----
OK, the instead of thing refuses to be displayed on the posting. It should be: less-than/exclamation mark/DOCTYPE .(snip).
----
on the Solaris side.

Is anyone on this forum sending special characters from OS/390 to Solaris and willing to share the code pages you used? The 3270 emulator keyboard setting might be of interest too, I guess.

Thanks a lot for your help,
Stefan

PS. Sorry if this is not a purely Java related question

I think if you bracket your stuff with

<code>
Exactly as I want it to appear
etc etc
</code>

We will see more clearly what you mean

Kolban,
if I read my posting again I have to doubt that I was sober when I wrote it...
OK, here is the 'purified' description problem: When sending an exclamation mark from OS/390 to Solaris, it gets converted to a closing bracket (]). The putting application sets CCSID 37, the receiving application is on CCSID 819.

(1) Is anybody sending 'special' characters([,],{,},|,) from OS/390 to Solaris using the same CCSID's, which get converted successfully?

(2) If yes, what are the OS/390 (i.e. EBCDIC) hex codes you use for these characters?

(3) Did you have to select a certain keyboard mapping scheme in your 3270 emulation software?

Do I make more sense now?
Sorry for the confusion I caused.
Thanks,
Stefan

Square brackets are a pain with 3270 Emulators. If you are using IBM's PCOM, set the PC code page to 1047 and the host code page to 037.

Log into TSO select option 0 (settings) and set your terminal type to 3279B (number 5 at the bottom of the screen - whatever it is).

I'm at home right now with no access to the mainframe but I will verify it tomorrow.

later

Roger,
I'll check with my colleague about his PC setup. We are using Attachmate's Extra!PC.
Thanks for your help,
Stefan

Here's what I have:

- Host code page is set to 1047 US.
- Under TSO/ISPF, from the main menu select option '0'. For terminal Type select 5 (3290A).

Also, on your 3270 emulator, go into the keyboard mapping setup and make sure '[' = '[' and ']' = ']'. This may sound strange but sometimes these keys are set to other values!!!!
