Hi everyone,

Fixing the behaviours of java.text against JDK 1.4.2 I am encountering some 
strange things. For example, java.text.ChoiceFormat.parse may raise a 
ParseException in JDK 1.4.2 although the interface does not permit it. This 
poses a problem because on one hand we want to be JDK compatible but on the 
other hand we cannot adapt Java compilers to our needs...

Looking at GNU/Classpath they seem to have some more things implemented but 
the strict behaviour is also wrong. (sigh) What do you think we should do 
here ? Just pass it through ?
