Oracle Database (10g) & Developer 6i settings for Arabic/Urdu support

November 6, 2016

Hi guys

I think it was 2001-2002 our company decided to migrate to Developer 6i based build from Developer 2000 (4.5). We had loads of fun setting up the Arabic part for the forms runtime. I remember setting up the NLS_LANG string as ‘ARMSAWIN1256’ instead of ‘AR8MSWIN1256’ and wasting hours trying to figure out what went wrong.

If not often, I receive requests once in a while, asking about setting up the Arabic (Right to left languages) environment for client server architecture. Today I am “Showing” you a how to, rather than typing the entire stuff here :)

This Video demonstrates the following few

  1. Creating a database using AR8MSWIN1256 character set
  2. Setting up the languages and Unicode parameters to show correct languages
  3. Setting up client OS (Windows Xp, later OS)
  4. Hope the attempt helps few out there :)
