Subject [jira] Commented: (JDO-547) api2 ObjectIdentityTest.testStringNullDateConstructor fails due to unexpected date format in different locales
Date Fri, 26 Oct 2007 16:28:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JDO-547?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12538010
] 

Craig Russell commented on JDO-547:
-----------------------------------

The code that is checked in assumes two things:

1. You can always execute DateFormat.getInstance() regardless of what your locale is.

2. DateFormat.getInstance() never throws an exception.

> Method testStringNullDateConstructor of api2 test class ObjectIdentityTest uses a DateFormat
instance obtained by DateFormat.getInstance(). This returns the default date/time formatter
which is then used to parse a date in format "M/d/yy h:mm a". 
> This does not work in case the default date/time formatter uses a format different from
"M/d/yy h:mm a", because of a different locale. E.g. the format for the German locale is "dd.MM.yy
HH:mm". This leads to an exception when parsing the date string:
> Testcase: testStringNullDateConstructor(javax.jdo.identity.ObjectIdentityTest):	Caused
an ERROR
> Error parsing Date string "10/9/2007 4:26 PM" at position 2 using date format "dd.MM.yy
HH:mm".
> javax.jdo.JDOUserException: Error parsing Date string "10/9/2007 4:26 PM" at position
2 using date format "dd.MM.yy HH:mm".
