Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-362) Add ExtendedMessageFormat to org.apache.commons.lang.text
Date Tue, 04 Mar 2008 20:27:44 GMT


Matt Benson commented on LANG-362:

I didn't get to it until today.  And I was close... but, in the end, it appears that the API
of MessageFormat makes it simply impossible to support additional embedded subformats in a
ChoiceFormat.  This sucks.

Anyway, I will document this and remove the testcases.  If anyone else cares to look into
this in the future, be my guest.  But as far as I can tell this requires (possibly very simple)
changes in java.text.MessageFormat.  I _may_ add something to the bug parade, though my past
experiences with this (admittedly pre-GPL Java) haven't been great.
