Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-362) Add ExtendedMessageFormat to org.apache.commons.lang.text
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2008 20:53:40 GMT


Matt Benson commented on LANG-362:

It seems somewhat misleading to keep running do-nothing tests.  I figured having them around
in rcs was good enough, though I'll concede someone coming in later might not notice them
right away.  What if I simply comment or similarly disable them?

Also, if you could verify when you run the failing tests that the stacktrace contains a call
to MessageFormat's constructor, I could submit my RFE to the Sun... I'm running on OSX now.
 If not, I'll do it later.

For information's sake, I plan to suggest replacing new MessageFormat(pattern) with MessageFormat
mf = (MessageFormat) this.clone(); mf.applyPattern(pattern); in the ChoiceFormat handling
would suffice, though I don't plan to go through all the submit-a-fix-to-Sun rigmarole...
