Please review the proposed changes for 8008577, the implementation of
the JEP-252. The proposed changes are located at:
Here are the very high level summary of changes:
- Now the default locale provider order is CLDR,JRE,SPI.
- The CLDR data is upgraded from 21.0.1 to 27.0.0
- According the CLDR upgrade, the converter tool and the runtime are now
capable of "alias" and "parentLocales" tags.
- Regression tests that are specific to the existing JRE locale data are
now run specifically with "JRE,SPI" providers.
I would like the build group to review the build changes mainly with the
CLDR changes, and i18n group for the rest.
