Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-4725) Fix message build so that double quotes aren't inserted for English messages.
Date Tue, 29 Jun 2010 20:53:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4725?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12883696#action_12883696

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-4725:

Thanks for digging into this, Knut. The issue comes up because of the localization work being
done on the 10.6 messages. As you have noticed, quoting isn't done consistently across our
messages. I'm not confident that the messages appear correctly today on all possible vms.
This is an area of Derby which is largely untested.

>            Reporter: Rick Hillegas
>            Priority: Minor
> When messages_en.properties is generated from messages.xml, single quotes are turned
into double quotes. For instance, the text for 42XAC is turned into 
> ''INCREMENT BY'' value can not be zero.
> This doesn't seem to cause any harm. MessageFormat does the right thing and strips out
the extra quote. If the messages only have single quotes, MessageFormat also does the right
thing and leaves the phrase single-quoted. The double quotes, however, are confusing to the
people who are localizing the 10.6 messages. There would be less confusion if the build did
not insert extra quotes.
