      Description

      When I use '^' flag, it was throwing exception.
      you have moved flags to different file (java.util.FormattableFlags),
      which has UPPERCASE (=2) as flag.

      When i did a diff between build 48 and build 49 source i could find
      the following method has a missed UPPERCASE support.
      line 4056 : of Formatter.java file method :
      private static Flags parse(char c) {
       ...
      }
      has switch statement and there is no
       case for '^' : return UPPERCASE;

      And i could see UPPERCASE usage in many places of that java file.
