This problem does not happen in promotion build. It's only in the internal build for message drop1 in 7u6.

If it's not fixed in message drop, it will become a regression.

All the CAPS words are not translated in Java logging. This happens in all the locales.

some logs:

EVALUATION This issue came up before and was resolved before: 7021691 3/3 Most log level words are not translated in java logging 7025302 3/3 NLS: logging.properties translatability guideline violation Why was yet another bug opened?

EVALUATION The root cause is because the strings were ALL CAPS in English resource file jdk/src/share/classes/sun/util/logging/resources/logging.properties Could the English strings be replaced with just the first character capitalized? This is Oracle coding standard.
