Generate UTF-8 vs ANSI

Post by bmapes » Tue 16 Sep 2014 15:36

I'm using Entity Developer to generate database scripts. The scripts generated are UTF-8. Is there a setting to generate the scripts as ANSI instead?

Please describe a scenario when you need DDL script with ANSI encoding instead of UTF-8. Why this is required for your task?

We are generating Oracle table create scripts from our model. These scripts are to be run in SQL*Plus via the Windows command line. ANSI is supported but UTF-8 is not. There are some workarounds but none that are acceptable to our customers.

A few years ago we used a version of Entity Devleloper and we believe scripts were generated in ANSI. Maybe we were mistaken, I'm not sure.

New build of Entity Developer 5.7.451 is available for download:
  • The behaviour is changed: Generate Database Script From Model saves the output in ASCII format if there are no unicode symbols in the script; UTF-8 is used otherwise
