Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-962) Vector3DFormat.parse does not ignore whitespace
Date Sun, 07 Apr 2013 20:33:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-962?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13625010#comment-13625010

Thomas Neidhart commented on MATH-962:
--------------------------------------

This is because internally the number format for the default locale is used in your test-case
(without specifying another number format). As in this case grouping is activated (with ','
being the grouping character, e.g. for US locale), the string "1, 2, 3" is interpreted as
123. As there are no other values but 3 are expected, the return value is null.

To use the Vector3DFormat with ',' as separator, you should explicitly disable grouping like
this:

{noformat}
        NumberFormat nf = NumberFormat.getInstance(Locale.getDefault());
        nf.setGroupingUsed(false);
        Vector3DFormat vf = new Vector3DFormat("(", ")", ",", nf);
        System.out.println(vf.parse("(1, 2, 3)")); // prints {1; 2; 3}
        System.out.println(vf.parse("(1,2,3)")); // prints null
{noformat}

Afaik, this is one of the reasons why we use ';' as default separator for these vector formats,
as this one does not interfere with the usual grouping characters for various locale settings.

I am not sure this is really a bug, but the error handling could be improved.

> Vector3DFormat notes it ingores whitespace in the javadoc but in the below example it
does not:
> 	Vector3DFormat vf = new Vector3DFormat("(", ")", ",");
> 	System.out.println(vf.parse("(1, 2, 3)")); //prints {1; 2; 3}
> 	System.out.println(vf.parse("(1,2,3)"));   //prints null
