Capital Sharp S is displayed as SS instead of the (new) Uppercase ß
Last updated on NOVEMBER 06, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Forms - Version 188.8.131.52.0 and later
Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The uppercase of ß, (Sharp S) is translated as 'SS'.
The problem also occurs with standalone Java, both Java 7 and Java 8 outside of Forms or other application.
The uppercase of ß (capital sharp S) needs to be translated to a single character ß, in order to be compliant with national law.
Recently, (June 2017), official German orthography states that upper S sharp must use a single character.
See character: u1E9E
