RPG stored procedures return garbage in WebSphere or Java

When using RPG stored procedures that use arrays for result sets, it can return untranslated EBCDIC in Java when using the native JDBC Driver on different operating system versions. To fix this problem, add ";translate binary=true" to the end of the URL. For example, if the URL passed to getConnection method of DriverManager is "jdbc:db2:myas400" the new URL would be "jdbc:db2:myas400;translate binary=true".

This problem is that the RPG Array is returning CCSID 65535.
