Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-650) Load DateField translations from JDK
Date Fri, 25 Jun 2010 11:27:49 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLK-650?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12882534#action_12882534

Finn Bock commented on CLK-650:
-------------------------------

> With regards to the default date format, it is quite easy to change globally in an application
page.properties files:
>  date-format-pattern=dd/MM/yyyy 

I would not do that. Of the 135 locales in my jdk1.6, only 32 uses dd/MM/yyyy. It would IMO
be better if the default pattern was taken from DateFormat.getDateInstance(MEDIUM) if date-format-pattern
is unspecified. That way the default is reasonable and it is possible to override if the locales
default is too old-fashioned or cumbersome. However, that is for another JIRA issue and patch.

> From CLK-624:
> Before we all go ahead and submit translations for month and day names (and abbreviations),
I think it would make more sense for DateField to generate these names from here:
> http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/text/DateFormatSymbols.html#getMonths%28%29
> http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/text/DateFormatSymbols.html#getShortMonths%28%29
> http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/text/DateFormatSymbols.html#getWeekdays%28%29
> http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/text/DateFormatSymbols.html#getShortWeekdays%28%29
> By creating the arrays from java's names we will AFAIK also instantly "support" all language
so that DateField.SUPPORTTED_LANGUAGES can be removed.
