--------------------------------------

             Summary: getLocaleName does not return consistent results depending on the platform
                 Key: CB-6490
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-6490
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Plugin Globalization, WP8
         Environment: Windows Phone 8
            Reporter: Pascale Dardailler
            Assignee: Jesse MacFadyen


getLocaleName does not return consistent results depending on the platform.

The documentation should be changed to state that it should return a BCP 47 representation
of Unicode locale identifier (see http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr35/#Unicode_locale_identifier
- section "3.3.1 BCP 47 tag conversion") to identify the culture  of the user, and disambiguate
the region as a place.

Implementation should be changed accordingly. 

WindowsPhone 8 implementation is incorrect. Returning country code is not enough. It should
use CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Name.

Android and iOS should use "dashes" instead of  "underscores".
