- Subject: ResourceBundle variants and child variants
Mauve contains a couple of java.util.ResourceBundle checks that test for
"child variants". The Java Class Libraries, Volume 1, Second Edition
explains these things and gives some examples. e.g
ErrorResources_de_CH_WIN_95 and ErrorResources_de_CH_WIN_311 are both
child variants of ErrorResources_de_CH_WIN. Mauve even contains some
tests to check that these child variants are correctly searched for.
The API Spec as found online however does not talk about child variants
at all. And a quick test against the Sun JDK 1.4.1 implementation seems
to suggest that it does not implement support for these child variants.
Which specification should we take as normative?
Do the different class libraries implementations implement it?
(GNU Classpath and libgcj don't support them, kaffe does.)
Should these tests be removed from Mauve?
