Subject [jira] [Created] (BEANUTILS-486) DateConverter fails when pattern and locale are set
Date Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:29:25 GMT
Andrew Rucker Jones created BEANUTILS-486:

             Summary: DateConverter fails when pattern and locale are set
                 Key: BEANUTILS-486
             Project: Commons BeanUtils
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Locale BeanUtils / Converters
    Affects Versions: 1.9.2
         Environment: MacOS X 10.11.4
Java 1.8.0_11
Default locale: de_DE
            Reporter: Andrew Rucker Jones

When using a DateConverter or any of the date conversion classes, setting an explicit pattern
causes the locale to be ignored. The converter seems to think that the locale is only useful
for finding the default pattern for the locale, but that's not true, as the following code

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("MMM dd, yyyy", new Locale("en_US"));
        ParsePosition pos = new ParsePosition(0);
        Date result = sdf.parse("Dec 15, 1978", pos);
        System.out.println(result); // Prints "Fri Dec 15 00:00:00 CET 1978"
        // Equivalent code should return the same result as the last section
        DateConverter c = new DateConverter();
        c.setPattern("MMM dd, yyyy");
        c.setLocale(new Locale("en_US"));
        c.convert(Date.class, "Dec 15, 1978"); // Throws ConversionException

I'm expanding opencsv (, and this bug is breaking my code. I would
really appreciate a speedy resolution.
