Error in Italian time format

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.8.0_66"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_66-b17)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.66-b17, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Linux kichemaru 3.10.17 #2 SMP Wed Oct 23 16:34:38 CDT 2013 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5600U CPU @ 2.60GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux



      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The Italian time format seems to be wrong.

      We wrote the following class:

      import java.text.DateFormat;
      import java.util.Locale;
      import java.util.Date;
       
      public class ItalyTime {
          public static final void main(String[] args) {
              Locale locale = Locale.forLanguageTag("it-IT");
              Date date = new Date();
              DateFormat dateFormat = DateFormat.getDateTimeInstance(DateFormat.MEDIUM, DateFormat.MEDIUM, locale);
              System.out.println(dateFormat.format(date));
          }
      }

      And got the following output:
      28-set-2016 14.46.17

      I am Italian and have never seen the hour, minutes and seconds separated by a dot, but always separated by a colon.

      Would it be possible to have this fixed please?

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      We wrote the following class:

      import java.text.DateFormat;
      import java.util.Locale;
      import java.util.Date;
       
      public class ItalyTime {
          public static final void main(String[] args) {
              Locale locale = Locale.forLanguageTag("it-IT");
              Date date = new Date();
              DateFormat dateFormat = DateFormat.getDateTimeInstance(DateFormat.MEDIUM, DateFormat.MEDIUM, locale);
              System.out.println(dateFormat.format(date));
          }
      }

      And got the following output:
      28-set-2016 14.46.17
