Problem with DBD::DB2 and UTF8.


Here is my setup:

DB2 V8.2 ESE running on Linux with utf-8 code set.
Database territory = us
Database code page = 1208
Database code set = utf-8
Database country/region code = 1

The tables in this database contain English, Spanish and Japanese text.
I have DB2 V8.2 ESE setup on AIX (5.1, 5.2, 5.3), the database on
AIX is setup as remote database:

System Database Directory

Number of entries in the directory = 1

Database 1 entry:

Database alias = GBLCODE
Database name = GBLCODE
Node name = GBLNODE
Database release level = a.00
Comment =
Directory entry type = Remote
Authentication = CLIENT
Catalog database partition number = -1
I have perl scripts using DBD:DB2 V 0.78 and DBI V1.45. The scripts were
running fine under AIX 5.1 and 5.2. Recently I upgraded one of the systems
from AIX 5.1 to AIX 5.3. Now my scripts do not work on AIX 5.3. When it
fetches/inserts any column that contains UTF-8 characters it
messes up the characters, and in many (not all) cases it thinks that the
data is bigger than the column during insert.

If I run the same script from AIX 5.2 system with everything else the same,
it works fine.

I ran command to update the instance and re-built DBI and DBD, but it did
not fix the error. I checked locale filesets between AIX 5.2 and AIX 5.3
and I cannot find anything missing.
I wrote a simple perl script that reads Japanese (utf-8) text from a file
and writes it out to another file, this seems to work so I think the problem
is in DB2/DBD interface.

I need to fix this problem because I need to upgrade the other system from
AIX 5.2 to AIX 5.3.

Noticed today that there have been two new versions of the DB2 driver released over the last week.   This is the first time IBM has released an update since October 2001, so to give us two releases in a week is a bit much to cope with <G> !!! 0.77 fixes a number of problems, including one which I reported to IBM (and helped to produce a fix for) involving memory leaks. 0.78 adds some new functionality, for C-style comments...

Hi, We've been using the perl DBD::DB2 driver on Perl version 5.8.0 (aix_thread_multi) for a project we're working on without any problems until now. We've been using DBD::DB2 version 0.78 on DB2 Version 8.1 (the db2 cli reports 8.1.0) and we've recently updated DB2 using FixPack 7. The project we're working on uses the DB2 driver for some webpages and a couple of daemon scripts. On the DB2 version without the FixPack the

I have a Perl script using DBD::DB2, that runs during system startup on a Solaris system.

(I don't have the exact message since I'm heard about it from a remote sysadmin who only saw it scroll by on the console). However, if I login as root on that machine and run...
