        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version "1.6.0-beta2"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-beta2-b86)
        Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0-beta2-b86, mixed mode, sharing)

        (All versions affected)

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        The french localization for the 'GF' country code is wrong.
        It should be "Guyane française" instead of "Guinée française".

        The english one : "French Guiana" is correct.


        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Very easy to reproduce:

        import java.util.Locale;

        public class TestLocale {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
        Locale locale = new Locale("en", "gf");
        System.out.print(locale.getDisplayCountry(new Locale("fr")));
        }
        }


        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        It should display the string "Guyane française".
        ACTUAL -
        "Guinée française"

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

        ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
        import java.util.Locale;

        public class TestLocale {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
        Locale locale = new Locale("en", "gf");
        System.out.print(locale.getDisplayCountry(new Locale("fr")));
        }
        }

        ---------- END SOURCE ----------

        CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
        Either we will have to patch the JVM, or extends the Locale class to provide the correct value for the GF country code.
