Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4492) Localized help message from derbyrun.jar has wrong encoding
Date Wed, 23 Dec 2009 22:02:29 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4492?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12794239#action_12794239
] 

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-4492:
-------------------------------------------

> Which languages did you look at specifically? German, and?

I've found problems with the messages in these locales:

de_DE
fr_FR
zh_TW
zh_CN
ja_JP

(No, I don't know Chinese or Japanese, but I know what Chinese and Japanese characters don't
look like...)

I suspect there are problems with all the locales touched by DERBY-4221, but those are the
only languages I have checked explicitly.

For French and German, the problem isn't that severe. The messages look odd, but they are
still possible to understand since most characters are ascii anyway. For languages that uses
mostly non-ascii characters, I would believe the garbled messages are completely incomprehensible,
though.

> When I change the locale to one of the languages for which we have localized tools messages,
either by changing the system locale or by setting the derby.ui.locale property, the output
from derbyrun.jar is garbled:
> $ java -Dderby.ui.locale=zh_TW -jar derbyrun.jar
> 用法:
> java -jar derbyrun.jar ij [-p propertiesfile] [sql script]
> java -jar derbyrun.jar sysinfo [-cp ...] [-cp help] 
> java -jar derbyrun.jar dblook [args] (或是不加引數以查看用法)
> java -jar derbyrun.jar server [args] (或是不加引數以查看用法)
> $ java -Dderby.ui.locale=de_DE -jar derbyrun.jar
> Syntax:
> java -jar derbyrun.jar ij [-p Merkmaldatei] [sql Script]
> java -jar derbyrun.jar sysinfo [-cp ...] [-cp help] 
> java -jar derbyrun.jar dblook [Argumente] (oder ohne Argumente für Syntaxinformationen)
> java -jar derbyrun.jar server [Argumente] (oder ohne Argumente für Syntaxinformationen)
> Only the help message from derbyrun.jar is garbled. The other tools appear to produce
fine output, even when invoked via derbyrun.jar:
> $ java -Dderby.ui.locale=zh_TW -jar derbyrun.jar sysinfo
