Description

Name: jl125535			Date: 03/12/2002


FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.4.0"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-b92)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-b92, mixed mode)


FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
Reproduced on Solaris 8 with JDK 1.4.


A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Here in Brazil we use two decimal places for currency
(#.##0,00), but the pattern returned by
getCurrencyInstance is #.##0,## - which ignores zeros
after the decimal.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
Currency pattern expected for Brazil is "R$ #.##0,00".
It is currently returning "R$ #.##0,##".


This bug can be reproduced always.

---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
import java.text.DecimalFormat;
import java.text.NumberFormat;
import java.util.Locale;

class CurrencyTest {

    public static void main (String argv[] )  {
        String expectedCurrencyPattern = "\u00A4 #.##0,00";    
    
        Locale locale = new Locale ("pt", "BR");
        Locale.setDefault(locale);
    
        DecimalFormat formatter = 
            (DecimalFormat) NumberFormat.getCurrencyInstance(locale);

        if (formatter.toLocalizedPattern().equals(expectedCurrencyPattern)) {
            System.out.println ("Passed.");
        } else {
             System.out.println ("Failed Currency pattern." +
                    "  Expected:  " + expectedCurrencyPattern +
                    "  Received:  " + formatter.toLocalizedPattern() );
        }
    }
}

EVALUATION Kieran, could you please validate the currency pattern for Brazil and fix this in mantis? thx! ###@###.### 2002-09-25 Since this bug also affects i18n testing, please fix it before mantis engineering code freeze. ###@###.### 2002-11-05 ###@###.### 2002-11-07 One thing I'm noticing in this bug: in the description , the expected format is "R$ #.##0,00" while ours is apparently giving "R$ #.##0,##". Changing the decimal pattern is no problem, but in our source the format seems to be "#,##0.##" i.e. as well as the '##', we seem to have ',' for the thousands separator and '.' for the deciaml one. The strange thing is, the sample code given is printing out our unchanged one as "#.##0,##". It looks like we're getting the right thing for the separators, despite apparently having the wrong string in the code. Does this need to be changed as well, or is it a case of "if it ain't broke......."? ###@###.### 2002-11-08 ******** l10n evaluation template - begin *********** Evaluation : Fixing the currency pattern for brazilian.
