Unicode bloat blights SAP upgrades

Lostweekend

UTF-16

"Macro4 SAP product specialist Markus Fehr told The Reg that Unicode requires four bytes of memory per character" ... which as a sound bite is technically correct re. UTF-32

Trouble is, SAP uses UTF-16 on the application server layer and either UTF-8, CESU-8, or UTF-16 on the database layer.

Perhaps the 'SAP product Specialist'' should read SAP's FAQs
