JUSTIFICATION :
  To support Java project developments in Vietnam. Java has taken root in Vietnam and is gaining popularity as evidenced by the growing number of Java developers and online programming support communities. The current trend towards low-cost, open-source software, primarily Linux operating system, has also helped drive Java??????s popularity.

The community of Vietnamese software developers in Vietnam needs Sun's support in terms of implementation of a Vietnamese locale in J2SE and J2EE to facilitate software design of Vietnamese localized applications using Java.

Incidentally, all or most of the infrastructure support and background information needed for implementing locale vi_VN has already been developed and provided by IBM??????s International Components for Unicode (http://oss.software.ibm.com/icu), specifically:

http://oss.software.ibm.com/icu/charts/collation/vi.html

http://oss.software.ibm.com/cvs/icu/~checkout~/icu/source/data/locales/vi.txt (the collation rule is incorrect; see http://www.jtcsv.com/cgi-bin/icu-bugs/incoming?id=3308;page=6;user=guest)

Based on those existing developments and on the Latin base of Vietnamese language, hopefully, it'd be a minor effort for Sun to incorporate a Vietnamese locale into J2SE 1.5 and J2EE 1.4.

EVALUATION

We are currently evaluating the amount of effort it would take to implement Vietnamese support.  We are also looking at the detailed requirements of this locale.
