Yes, it works, with -Duser.language.
Unfortunately, I am looking for a way to change the default/initial
locale, and then using these system properties to change the effective
locale again. :-)
Precisely, there is a test using grep to match warning messages and on a
Chinese Windows it cannot find the hardcoded English text. Since I only
have Windows in English, I need to a way to mimic a Chinese Windows
first, and then see if adding -Duser.language=en -Duser.country=US to
the test will make it work again.
On a Mac it's much easier.
