      Description

      It should be possible to plug additional locale-specific implementations of locale dependent functionality into a Java runtime. Applications using the J2SE APIs then see this functionality to be supported for a larger set of locales. In particular, the getAvailableLocales methods in the classes defining locale dependent functionality return the newly supported locales, and the various get*Instance methods return appropriately localized objects. Within the java.text and java.util packages, the following classes should be extensible:
      - Calendar
      - Currency
      - Locale
      - TimeZone
      - BreakIterator
      - Collator
      - DateFormat
      - DateFormatSymbols
      - DecimalFormatSymbols
      - NumberFormat

      The main benefit of such extensibility is that third parties can provide support for locales where Sun or other providers of Java runtimes don't have the necessary expertise.

      A complementary feature is the ability for third parties to add their own localized strings to packages in the JRE that provide them, such as Swing. This has been filed as RFE 4703909.
