Problem:

Does StarTeam support Unicode character sets?

Resolution:


  • Product Name:StarTeam
  • Product Version: 2005 & 2005 R2
  • Product Component: Server
  • Platform/OS Version: Windows

Answer:

StarTeam Server supports data in all languages that can be encoded in UTF-8, however it uses only ASCII characters (0-127) as it expands keywords. Characters outside that range expand to "?".

Keyword expansion and EOL conversion should work for all "ASCII-based" encodings, which includes UTF-8, Cp1252, and so on. It does not include the various UTF-16 encodings. StarTeam currently treats UTF-16 encodings as binary and does not attempt to perform either EOL or keyword expansion on them.

The internal names of custom fields must be ASCII, but the display names can be in non-English character sets.
