6.10.5 Orphan Language Record Handling

Orphan language records are created when a language is removed from a partition after that language has been added to a LANSA object. When the language is removed from the partition, the language text for all LANSA objects is left in place. Thus orphan records are created.

LANSA has never had any special handling of orphaned language text records and this has not changed. Please note:

We have no special handling for orphaned language records. It is not a feature of LANSA to maintain these records, that is, IBM i Export does not export them. Therefore we have no need to work out the correct CCSID for these texts when for example, IBM i Check In receives them. The current behavior is that the default language's CCSID will be used.
