Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLI-226) createNumber() in TypeHandler cannot work with some Locale
Date Sat, 30 Jun 2012 14:09:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLI-226?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13404503#comment-13404503
] 

Gary D. Gregory commented on CLI-226:
-------------------------------------

The nice way to fix this is to rewrite {{org.apache.commons.cli.TypeHandler.createNumber(String)}}
like this:

{code:java}
    public static Number createNumber(String str) throws ParseException
    {
        try
        {            
           return NumberFormat.getNumberInstance().parse(str);
        }
        catch (NumberFormatException e)
        {
            throw new ParseException(e.getMessage());
        } catch (java.text.ParseException e) 
        {
            throw new ParseException(e.getMessage());
        }
    }
{code}

But this makes one assert fail in {{org.apache.commons.cli.PatternOptionBuilderTest.testNumberPattern()}}

Thoughts?

> The {{createNumber()}} method in the {{TypeHandler}} class expects the decimal separator
to be a dot ({{'.'}}). However the dot is not used in all the languages as a decimal separator.
Most of the European countries, Russia and a lot of others countries uses a comma ({{','}}).
> With the corresponding {{Locale}}, the {{createNumber()}} method fails, throwing an exception.
> For example:
> {code:title=Type.java|borderStyle=solid}
> public class Type {
>     public static void main(final String[] args) {
>         java.util.Locale.setDefault(java.util.Locale.GERMANY);
>         String text = java.text.NumberFormat.getNumberInstance().format(12.34);
>         Number nb = org.apache.commons.cli.TypeHandler.createNumber(text);
>         System.out.println(nb);
>     }
> }
> {code}
