      Description



      Name: rl43681 Date: 06/18/2003


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      We need support for Azerbaijanian locale data in JDK 1.3.1/1.4.x

      Some information about Azebaijan republic and Azeri language:
      1. According to Decree #141s from 28-jul-01 of Azerbaijanian cabinet Azerbaijanian language has only latin encoding and following codeset's defined:
      -Unicode (http://www.latin.az:8101/Images/unicode-ru.gif);

      -ISO-8859-9/ANSI1254 (http://www.latin.az:8101/Images/cp1254-ru.gif) - but this is not Turkish ISO-8859-9!!!;

      -Latin-5/OEM857 (http://www.latin.az:8101/Images/cp857-ru.gif).
      More information is available on official website http://www.latin.az/
      (Unfortunately only Azeri and Russian translations)

      2. Microsoft according to List of Languages Supported in Windows 2000 and Windows XP supports (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb%3ben-us%3b292246) both Azery Latin & Cyrillic only for Windows XP and Windows 2003.

      3. There are Oracle enhancement requests for inclusion az_AZ locale into Oracle RDBMS (http://metalink.oracle.com/metalink/plsql/ml2_documents.showDocument?p_database_id=BUG&p_id=2973414) and into Oracle JInitiator (http://metalink.oracle.com/metalink/plsql/ml2_documents.showDocument?p_database_id=BUG&p_id=2995954)

      4. JDK 1.3.1 contains in java.text.resources.LocaleElements definition for az_AZ on lines 62 & 210. In JDK 1.4.x the name of class is sun.text.resources.LocaleElements and this class also contains definition for az_AZ.
      5. Both JDK1.3.1 and JDK 1.4.x have support for Asia/Baku TZ ("Azerbaijan Time"/AZT & "Azerbaijan Summer Time"/AZST in java.text.Resources.DateFormatZoneData for JDK1.3.1 and in sun.text.Resources.DateFormatZoneData for JDK1.4.x.



      JUSTIFICATION :
      We have a lot of projects in which we must support of az_AZ locale in Java code. If you have further questions - don't hesitate to cantact me.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Due to fact that we have gathered all required information for az_AZ I have prepared proposed source files for JDK1.3.1 (java.text.resources.LocaleElements_az.java, java.text.resources.LocaleElements_az_AZ.java & java.text.resources.DateFormatZoneData_az.java) and for JDK1.4.x(sun.text.resources.LocaleElements_az.java, sun.text.resources.LocaleElements_az_AZ.java & sun.text.resources.DateFormatZoneData_az.java).
      N.B. I create these files without JDK locale builder tool.
      Or I can send all required information about language/territory including translations of country and language name.
