java version "1.2.2"
Classic VM (build JDK-1.2.2-W, native threads, symcjit)

In our "locale" (~Finland) there is a need for support our second official
language i.e. swedish. So we need a new locale "_sv_FI" with all possible
elements and format data; the new locale would be a mixture of
LocaleElements_fi and LocaleElements_sv.

(Review ID: 98187) 

WORK AROUND Name: mc57594 Date: 01/05/2000 We have tried to build our own implementation of "LocaleElements_sv_FI" (we don't feel very comfortable with the idea of adding our own classes to package "java.text.resources" ...) so that it loads both "LocaleElements_sv" and "LocaleElements_fi" and mixes those in method handleGetObject(). ======================================================================

EVALUATION Should be considered for Merlin. norbert.lindenberg@Eng 2000-01-26 We won't provide this locale in the standard J2RE. Instead, we're planning to provide pluggable locale support interfaces that allow third parties to implement this and other locales. Closing as duplicate of the RFE for that feature. ###@###.### 2001-11-13
