In ObjectStudio 8.5 and VisualWorks 7.10, Cincom has added full Unicode support to their DB2 connects. This means that from those versions, users will be able to use Unicode table and column names, include Unicode strings in their SQL statements, bind Unicode strings to host variables and even input and output Unicode strings to and from stored procedures.
