mvsCodePage file property

Enterprise Extensions source control management (SCM) uses the mvsCodePage versionable property to determine what kind of encoding to use to load resources to MVS™ or USS. You can set this property either on the file property page in the Eclipse client, or using the scm command line property set subcommand.
Notes:
  • Use the scm command line property set subcommand to set the mvsCodePage property for several files at one time.
  • If a file has the Line Delimiter set to None (Binary) on the Jazz Source Control page of the file properties, the file loads to the file system with no conversion. The information about the mvsCodePage file property does not apply to the file.
When Enterprise Extensions SCM on z/OS® attempts to determine what kind of encoding to use to load resources to MVS, it performs these steps:
  1. It checks the mvsCodePage file property. If that property is set for a file, and if that property is not empty, SCM applies the mvsCodePage property.
  2. If a file does not have the mvsCodePage property set, and if the ZLANG environment variable is set, SCM applies whatever property is specified in the ZLANG environment variable.
  3. If a file does not have the mvsCodePage property set, and if ZLANG is not set, SCM applies the system default encoding.

  2. If a file does have the mvsCodePage property set, but it is empty, and if the ZLANG environment variable is set, SCM applies whatever property is specified in the ZLANG environment variable.
  3. If the ZLANG environment variable is not set, SCM applies the system default encoding.
  4. If the mvsCodePage property is not specified at all, SCM loads all the files to the repository without converting any of them.
