PowerDesigner Proxy and Oracle InstantClient

74 Views

Hi, we've ran into an issue installing PD Proxy and using Oracle InstantClient Basic 19.3. COMMENT was shown with incorrect charset conversion (some special characters replaced by '?') for any object type using proxy connection. Other fields such as NAME or NOTES were not affected, only COMMENT. A direct ODBC connection would show COMMENT correctly. It's unclear why only COMMENT, and only when accessed via proxy, would be affected but that's what happened. We found SAP Note 2295816 which describes a similar issue. Replacing the InstantClient with Full Client resolved the issue. Any idea why only COMMENT via Proxy Server was affected ?

Also, is there a list for PD Proxy 16.7 SP05 supported database clients ? Can't find anything in the docs or PAM.

Thanks,

Eduardo.
