1254163 - Languages and Locales in the JRC / CRJ / CR for Eclipse

Symptom

Which languages and locales are supported by the Crystal Reports for Java (CRJ) SDK (also known as Crystal Reports for Eclipse, CR4E) ?

Resolution

The CRJ uses IBM libraries for localization support.

The CRJ is pure 100% Java and uses the Unicode character set internally.  We don't explicitly specify Locale, but we specify supported languages in the supported platform list.

Within the language itself, all the il10n and il8n is handled by IBM ICU Java libraries, which are the libraries used for date, string and number formatting,
given a language and locale.  We specify an explicit language, since that's what our UI supports (i.e., viewer strings have to be translated by us and put in webreporting.jar), so we don't support all languages that IBM ICU Java lib supports, but the text formatting is handled by the IBM ICU.

One notable exception to this is PDF; PDF only supports WinANSI (codepage 1252) and the original CJK (Chinese Japanese Korean) characters included in the
original Adobe Asia Language Pack (no extensions like Thai, etc.).  Because of this, we don't support all Asian, Arabic, Hebrew or Eastern European characters in the PDF.
