Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-996) FastDateFormat is case sensitive
Date Mon, 21 Apr 2014 21:09:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-996?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13976039#comment-13976039

Sebb commented on LANG-996:
---------------------------

That's not sufficient - setCalendar is not used when parsing the date; the generated regex
also needs to be case-blind

> It seems that {{FastDateFormat}} is case sensitive. But it claims to be mostly compatible
with {{SimpleDateFormat}} which is not.
> For example, this throws a {{ParseException}}:
> {code:java}
> FastDateFormat.getInstance("dd-MMM-yyyy").parse("01-jan-2000");
> {code}
> But these do not:
> {code:java}
> SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("dd-MMM-yyyy");
> sdf.parse("01-jan-2000");
> DateUtils.parse("01-jan-2000", "dd-MMM-yyyy");
> {code}
