I have problem like i'm sending 6000 bytes from cobol stored procedure..which when i get in bytes gets reduced in Websphere Application Server(runs on Sun Solaris).This is character which creates problem �.When this character comes twice in the works fine.but after that each appearance of this character reduces me one byte.This problem in my local PC(Visual Age for Java running on Windows 2000)is not appearing.Data is coming from MainFrame...I checked the db2 driver version in both these environments.
Driver Name:IBM DB2 JDBC 2.0 Type 2
Driver Version:07.02.0000

The problem is probably that it is a damn French charactarer showing it's obstinance because it has to exist in US software on US hardware. Just don't try to mix any German characters with it or you'll really have some problems.
