Description Robert Muir 2012-06-13 15:10:06 UTC
We updated the openjdk port to 7.4.22 (from 7.3), and noticed some test failures that test our collation integration, because the Arabic locale was not behaving properly. The problem appears to be the Locale data is hosed in this update, and its falling back to the root locale "".

This can be seen easily by just listing the available locales.

How-To-Repeat: import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.Locale;

public class ListLocales {
  public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {

This gives a bogus list: [, ben, arn]

I installed the latest port on Apache Lucene's FreeBSD installation where
our daily builds are running. No more test failures with Farsi and other


Thanks for quickly fixing this!
