Subject Re: Using a localized pattern with fmt:formatNumber
Date Tue, 14 Sep 2004 14:29:28 GMT
Helios -- you're pretty much right. My reason is basically academic; let 
me exlain -- The Struts bean:write tag applies the pattern as a 
localized pattern if the pattern is retrieved using the formatKey 
attribute. I was basically trying to find out if there was a way to 
emulate this behavior in JSTL. In actuality, the Struts approach yields 
a bug (27636) in that if the pattern is not defined in the resource 
bundle than the pattern specified in the default bundle may very well
