The client session locale is the locale that is sent to a Broker or Domain Manager in two possibly ways:

  • The client process locale is by default sent to the Domain Manager, and identifies the initial session locale.

  • The client session locale can be changed by calling the setLocale() or setRemoteLocale() method. Calling one of these methods causes a protocol verb to be executed at the server, which causes the server to remember the client session locale.

    The client program may use the setLocale() client API calls to indicate to the Domain Manager a select locale. Setting the locale that the Domain Manager remembers for the client does not change the configured setting of the client process locale.
