      Description



      Name: dfC67450 Date: 01/20/98



      The java.text.ChoiceFormat.equals(Object) method does not work correctly.
      This method should return false if called with null argument
      (see general contract for equals(): JLS 1.0 item 20.1.3, page 459).
      But it throws NullPointerException.


      Here is the test demonstrating the bug:

      -----------------Test.java------------------------
      import java.text.*;
      public class Test {
          public static void main (String args[]){

              double[] limits = {1, 20};
              String[] formats = {"xyz", "abc"};
              ChoiceFormat cf = new ChoiceFormat(limits, formats);
              System.out.println(cf.equals(null));
          }
      }

      ---------Output from the test---------------------
      java.lang.NullPointerException
              at java.text.ChoiceFormat.equals(ChoiceFormat.java)
              at Test.main(Test.java:8)
      -------------------------------------------------
