Subject [jira] Reopened: (HARMONY-205) java.text.DecimalFormat doesn't support BigDecimal and BigInteger parsing

George Harley reopened HARMONY-205:

Hi Paulex, 

Despite not causing any failures in the text module tests, the changes to DecimalFormat has
resulted in failures in the LUNI, SQL and security modules. I am backing out these changes
until the cause has been fully investigated and fixed. 

One quick comment : in the failures for java.util.Date, the year part of a date was including
a grouping separator so that, for example, the year "1970" was presented as "1,970". 

Best regards,

> Java 5 enhances java.text.DecimalFormat  to format and parse BigDecimal and BigInteger
values without loss of precision. Parsing into BigDecimal needs to be enabled using the setParseBigDecimal
method. Harmony doesn't provide this method, neither this feature.
