I think it was 2001-2002 our company decided to migrate to Developer 6i based build from Developer 2000 (4.5). We had loads of fun setting up the Arabic part for the forms runtime. I remember setting up the NLS_LANG string as ‘ARMSAWIN1256’ instead of ‘AR8MSWIN1256’ and wasting hours trying to figure out what went wrong.
If not often, I receive requests once in a while, asking about setting up the Arabic (Right to left languages) environment for client server architecture. Today I am “Showing” you a how to, rather than typing the entire stuff here :)
This Video demonstrates the following few
- Creating a database using AR8MSWIN1256 character set
- Setting up the languages and Unicode parameters to show correct languages
- Setting up client OS (Windows Xp, later OS)
- Hope the attempt helps few out there :)
