DateFormatTransformer does not work correctly with non-default locale dates

    Details

    • Type: Bug Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Minor Minor
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 1.4
    • Fix Version/s: 1.5
    • Labels:
      None
    • Environment:

      Different locale in the imported data.

      Description

      The DateFormatTransformer assumes the default locale for date transformations.
      If your computer or server has its language set to 'es' and the input file has "November 30, 2009", it'll throw an exception.

      Here's a reproducible test case:
      Define an XML file:
      <awardlist><award><expirationdate>November 30, 2009</expirationdate></award></awardlist>

      Define the data-config.xml with:
      <field column="expirationdate_dt" xpath="/awardslist/award/expirationdate" dateTimeFormat="MMMMM dd, yyyy" />

      It'll throw:
      Exception in thread "main" java.text.ParseException: Unparseable date: "November 30, 2009"

        This patch checks for a locale attribute and applies it. If no locale attribute is specified, then the default one on the system is used.

        Here's an example of the locale attribute:
        <field column="startdate_dt" xpath="/awardslist/award/startdate" dateTimeFormat="MMMMM dd, yyyy" locale="en" />
