Homogeneous Environments When starting a new project.21 inches has been interpreted as 121718910971323 meters when published to an XML file. Many customers are currently operating in unsupported heterogeneous environments and are often not aware of that fact. Doing so will only corrupt values in the database or in text files. This is the most common cause of numeric data corruption and calculation errors. especially when crossing language-group boundaries § Using an English server with different local language clients SmartPlant Instrumentation Release Bulletin 39 . a pipe run with a pressure of 35. use extra care during installation and configuration to ensure the proper creation and maintenance of homogeneous environments: § All the computers (servers and clients) within an integrated SmartPlant Enterprise implementation must have the same regional settings.3 psi can be read by the software as 353 psi to the user with different regional settings. For example.SECTION 4 Internationalization Supporting internationalization in a homogeneous environment is one of the enhancements available in SmartPlant Enterprise. For example. is not supported. § Do not cross the character-set locale boundary. Having users with different regional settings (like with a period versus a comma for the decimal point) causes the software to interpret values unpredictably. § Create Microsoft SQL Server databases with locale-specific collation settings and ensure that all databases have the same setting. or even multiple locales. These incorrect interpretations may be used in internal software calculations and can be impossible to backtrack or correct. § Do not cross the decimal locale boundary. A homogeneous environment uses elements from only a single locale. a German customer running on a German operating system using only German characters and German cultural conventions is a fully supported homogeneous environment configuration. a heterogeneous environment using elements from different. A cable length defined as 39 ft 11. Examples of heterogeneous environments: § Entering or viewing Japanese data on an US/English operating system § Using German Regional Settings (where the decimal point is a comma) on a US/English operating system § Using databases with different character encodings such as CL8MSWIN1251 or JA16SJIS § Using multiple languages in a project.
