Subject [jira] [Reopened] (LANG-828) FastDateParser does not handle non-Gregorian calendars properly
Date Wed, 26 Sep 2012 18:03:07 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-828?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Sebb reopened LANG-828:
-----------------------


Much searching and experimentation reveals that the reason for the problems is as mentioned
here: [1]

i.e. DateFormatSymbols#getEras() returns a pair of strings for Gregorian calendar AD and BC;
the method does not return the correct eras for th_TH or ja_JP_JP locales.

Also, these locales have long and short versions.

The solution is as mentioned in [1], i.e. use

Calendar.getDisplayNames(Calendar.ERA, Calendar.SHORT, locale);

for all locales.

> The following calendars are non-Gregorian [1]:
> ja_JP_JP - Japanese Imperial)
> th_TH (with any variant) - Thai Buddhist
> This causes errors when testing round-trip conversions.
> The simplest solution is to fall back to SimpleDateFormat for these calendars.
