Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-834) i18n/urlLocale.sql test fails on Windows XP
Date Tue, 21 Feb 2006 21:17:51 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-834?page=comments#action_12367263 ] 

Myrna van Lunteren commented on DERBY-834:

This behavior is to be expected when the test is run on a machine that does not have the en_US
locale set. 

observe this in the .sql: 
create procedure checkDatabaseLoc(in locale char(12)) parameter style java language java external
name 'org.apache.derbyTesting.functionTests.tests.i18n.DefaultLocale.checkDatabaseLocale';

create procedure checkRDefaultLoc() parameter style java language java external name 'org.apache.derbyTesting.functionTests.tests.i18n.DefaultLocale.checkRDefaultLocale';

-- this current database was created with the default locale 
call checkDatabaseLoc('en_US'); 
call checkRDefaultLoc(); 
so, it assumes that the default locale was en_US. 

Observe also for example this in the DefaultLocale.java: 
// used in urlLocale test 
public static void checkRDefaultLocale() throws SQLException 
if (!savedLocale.equals("en_US")) 
throw new SQLException("wrong_locale"); 

Now, whether this is a reasonable assumption is a different question... 

So far, the only way I have found of ensuring that the test runs with default locale set to
en_US is by hacking into the test harness' jvm.java and forcing user.country to US and user.language
to en. 

Is that an acceptable thing to do? 

I will experiment some more with different ways of setting this parameter.
