      x86_64
    • OS:
      windows_10

      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      Java SE 11

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The currency format for US locale in Java 8 for negative numbers included the parenthesis, but in Java 11 the negative numbers do not have parenthesis anymore.

      Example: -$195.00 is displayed as ($195.00) in Java 8 where it is displayed as -195.00 in Java 11

      REGRESSION : Last worked in version 8u201

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      See attached sample program that was used to test on Java 8 vs. Java 11

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      -$195.00 is displayed as ($195.00) in Java 8 where it is displayed as -195.00 in Java 11
      ACTUAL -
      -$195.00 is displayed as ($195.00) in Java 8 where it is displayed as -195.00 in Java 11
