Subject [jira] [Commented] (OAK-260) Avoid the "Turkish Locale Problem"
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2012 17:57:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-260?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13438038#comment-13438038
] 

Julian Reschke commented on OAK-260:
------------------------------------

For the record, the contract for equalsIgnoreCase:

  http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/api/java/lang/String.html#equalsIgnoreCase%28java.lang.String%29

This may do the right thing for the Turkish locale, but I'm not totally convinced it couldn't
fail with other fancy locales. It's probably better to always specify the locale.

> We currently use String.toUpperCase() and String.toLowerCase() and in some cases where
it is not appropriate. When running using the Turkish profile, this will not work as expected.

isn't a problem.
