Subject [jira] Created: (DERBY-4796) Missing escape for apostrophes in many messages
Date Thu, 09 Sep 2010 12:53:33 GMT
Missing escape for apostrophes in many messages

                 Key: DERBY-4796
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4796
             Project: Derby
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Localization
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Knut Anders Hatlen

The properties file format requires that single-quote characters are escaped with an extra
single-quote. A number of messages don't follow this rule.

Take this example from the Italian localization:

42X34=Esiste un parametro ? nell'elenco di selezione.  Ci\u00F2 non \u00E8 consentito.

Note that there's only a single apostrophe in "nell'elenco" above. When this message is printed,
the apostrophe will be omitted:

$ LC_ALL=it_IT.UTF-8 java -jar derbyrun.jar ij
Versione ij 10.6
ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:db;create=true';
ij> select ? from sys.systables;
ERRORE 42X34: Esiste un parametro ? nellelenco di selezione.  Ciò non è consentito.

We should go through the message files and add extra apostrophes where they are missing.
