2.2.7 Default Language
Select this option for the language that is to be the default. One of the languages defined must be nominated as the default language. The default language is an important language and has the following implications:
- When an application is invoked without nominating the required language, the default language will be used.
- Initial data dictionary, database and application development must be done in the default language. For instance, if you specify a field description via the data modeling extended file definition facilities, it is assumed that the description is in the default language.
Important: Until a default language has been defined for a multilingual partition, the partition will not be considered to be multilingual.
