Subject [jira] [Commented] (LANG-1328) FastDateFormat does not support 'EEE' and 'MMM' abbreviations for PT_pt
Date Thu, 04 May 2017 14:17:04 GMT


Pär Nils Amsen commented on LANG-1328:

[~kinow] Yes I suspect that it is _device specific_ aswell, the abbreviations/weekdays are
provided by the system right? My teammate tested on a couple of different devices:

*Samsung S3:*
PT_br: OK (Dor)
PT_pt: OK (Dor)

*Google Pixel:*
PT_br: OK (Dor)
PT_pt: NOK (Dormingo)

*Generic Android emulator*
PT_br: OK (Dor)
PT_pt: NOK (Dormingo)

Seems like the localization is provided by the device manufacturer or smth.

> For the following statement:
> {code:java}
> FastDateFormat.getInstance("MMM", timeZone, new Locale("pt", "pt")).format(1494115200);
> {code}
> The outcome will be "dormingo" instead of "dor" in Portugese (pt_PT). I expect this to
be a bug since the only reason for FastDateFormat to not abbreviate the weekdays would be
that Portugese does not allow it, not very likely.
