Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-470) Exception when using LOCALIZEDDISPLAY with JSR169
Date Wed, 24 Aug 2005 18:04:09 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-470?page=comments#action_12319887 ] 

Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-470:

Committed revision 239718 to fix this issue.  You can submit centralization of  HAVE_BIG_DECIMAL
 as another patch or with other JS169  changes.

It seems to me that for sharing the function  for multiple tools it would be better to put
the internal api in a shared utility class under


rather than making the function in ij.util public. 

Perhaps the fact that NUMERIC and DECIMAL types will not be localized in these JVM environments
should be mentioned in the documentation,

>      Project: Derby
>         Type: Bug
>   Components: Localization
>  Environment: IBM's J2ME/CDC/Foundation Profile and JSR169
>     Reporter: Deepa Remesh
>     Assignee: Deepa Remesh
>  Attachments: derby-470.diff, derby-470.status
> As I did not get any response to my mail, I am opening a JIRA issue for this.
> When I run the test i18n/I18NImportExport.java with JSR169 using IBM's J2ME/CDC/Foundation
Profile, I get the following exception:
> "JAVA ERROR: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: java/sql/ResultSet.getBigDecimal(II)Ljava/math/BigDecimal;"
> In the test, LOCALIZEDDISPLAY is on and the table has a DECIMAL column. This causes the
exception. On looking at the code, following is done to format DECIMAL types in LocalizedResource:
> if (type == Types.NUMERIC || type == Types.DECIMAL) { 
>       return  getNumberAsString(rs.getBigDecimal(columnNumber, rsm.getScale(columnNumber)));
> }
> where getNumberAsString method does the following:
> public String getNumberAsString(Object o){
>       if (enableLocalized){
>             return formatNumber.format(o, new StringBuffer(), new FieldPosition(0)).toString();
>       }
>       else {
>             return o.toString();
>       }
>  }
> As a solution, I am planning to do the following:
> 1. Check for BigDecimal class in the JVM by doing a Class.forName
> 2. Call getNumberAsString for NUMERIC and DECIMAL types only if BigDecimal class is available.
Otherwise, return rs.getString.
> This solution would mean that NUMERIC and DECIMAL types will not  be localized in these
JVM environments. Please let me know if any comments on this.
