Anyone help me please, I would like to know that oracle support laos languages. I have check on Locale Data on Doc. "Oracle @Database Globalization Support Guide 11g Release 2(11.2)" in topic Locale Data.
It seems oracle does not support laos languages. But Oracle support Unidoce . I am new and confused about it.
Hope anyone can help
Its Supported by useing World Lexer Features Doc Ref:http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/text.111/b28304/amultlng.htm#CEGBAFHC
and World Lexer supported by AL32UTF-8 or UTF8 Oracle character set encoding
Storage for text written in languages of Laos is supported through the AL32UTF8 database character set. However, the ability to specify LAO in the NLS_LANGUAGE parameter, which is necessary to get Laotian month and week names from TO_CHAR, has been freshly added in Oracle Database 12c. Before this release, Lao language data is not available for formatting.
Error messages in Lao are not available either.
Note, there are a lot of minority languages spoken in Laos beside Lao (Laotian). Those languages are not supported for NLS_LANGUAGE but storage of most of them should be supported through AL32UTF8.
Thank for your reply . However I don't know about "World Lexer Features". I am not sure that if I set database character to be AL32UTF8,database support Loas?
Now I try to create database and set database character to be AL32UTF8,national is AL16UTF16. I inserts data into test table ,is did'n show in Lao languages. And what should NLS_LANG be?
It will be a very kind of you to suggest me.
Thank you very much for your reply. It make me quite clear. I think I have a problem about NLS_LANGUAGE and tool to access database. In Oracle SQL Developer there is no Laotian in setting. If I use Oracle Database 12c ,it will support Laos Languages?
I have never heard about such thing as 'Oracle PL*SQL'. There is Oracle PL/SQL, which is a programming language, not a tool. There is Oracle SQL*Plus. There is Oracle SQL Developer. And there is PL/SQL Developer, which is a tool but not from Oracle. Which one do you use?
Yes, Oracle Database 12c will support Laotian on the database side. On the client side (Oracle SQL Developer), the setting may be unavailable until Oracle SQL Developer switches to JDBC 12c. I have not checked this.
Note, storage of Laotian text is independent of the N LS_LANGUAGE or SQL Developer settings. If you have problems with displaying Laotian from an AL32UTF8 database, this may be a problem of fonts. I suspect, Laotian Windows fonts may be not configured out of the box.
