Hi Ulf,

Thank you very much for your effort!

In the meantime, our Database Management contacted IBM direct.
According to IBM,it seems  that there is actually a problem, when this
codepage is not part of the official JRE release. So their DB2 driver 
be adapted to this IBM1153 charset.
We are just now in waiting queue.

Besides I will try to test your customized JAR. But I dont't know rigth 
now, when this will happen (during the next 6 weeks, I hope so).
Another problem also arised because we are just now limited to Java 
Runtime 1.5. minimum. So it can happen, that we cannot
use your new version.

Freundliche Grüße
Boris Ferdinand Just

Re: New charset IBM1153 

Hi Boris,

I now have compiled a customised JAR including charset CP1153 for you:

Usage (be aware to run with Java 6):
    java -Xbootclasspath/p:nio_charset_M4_customer_IBM1153.jar [-cp 
YourProject.jar] YourMainClass

The canonical name of the charset in question is "IBM01153".

Anyway (I guess, you would more prefer it in standard Java library) I 
would be thankful, if you would give it a try, just for feedback on my
