Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2188) Developer's Guide talks about a jdbc url property "locale" which is not supported by Derby.

Mamta A. Satoor commented on DERBY-2188:
----------------------------------------

Laura, I looked at the cdevin55108.html page and I have to admit that the contents of it look
confusing to me. The html seems to be giving contradictory information. May be someone who
knows more about tools, error messages and how they are related to locale can help us determine
the right content but I thought I will bring to the list's attention. 

The page says that "For example, Derby explicitly supports Spanish-language error messages.
If a database's locale is set to one of the Spanish-language locales, Derby returns error
messages in the Spanish language." So this seems to indicate that locale of the database will
determine the language of the error messages. But the line below seems to say that locale
of the database has nothing to do with language of the error messages. "The locale of the
database is set by the territory=ll_CC attribute when the database is created. However, **the
locale of the error messages and tools is not determined by the locale of the database**.
The locale of the error messages and tools is determined by the default system locale. This
means that it is possible to create a database with a non-default locale. In such a case,
error messages are not returned in the language of the locale of the database but are returned
in the language of the default locale instead."

Sorry, at this point, I do not know enough about how tools and error messages work in Derby
to tell you what is the right content for cdevin55108.html. I am hoping someone who knows
more about this can help us.

> Under "Localizing Derby" section, Developer's Guide talks about error messages and tools
not relying on database's locale set by "locale=ll_CC". But Derby does not support any property
called "locale". 
> The exact statement from documentation is as follows 
> "The locale of the error messages and of the tools is not determined by the database's
localle set by the locale=ll_CC attribute when the database is created but instead by the
default system locale. This means that it is possible to create a database with a non-default
locale. In such a case, error messages would not be returned in the language of the database's
locale but in the language of the default locale instead."
