|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] com.ibm.icu requirement|
Can you please explain why Subversive should use the ICU4J calendar and date/time formatting support and not be content with what's provided with standard Java?

You are right that NLS support is simple in Subversive, we just use icu4j classes for dates formatting and simple work with Calendar. Do you mean that Subversive can completely remove dependency on icu4j and use standard Java classes?Using date formatting or calendar is a good example of what you should be using ICU for, via the package imports for com.ibm.icu.text and com.ibm.icu.util ... those are the ones replaced by the com.ibm.icu.base plugin. If you were willing to switch from UCharacter to Character (I'm not sure what the difference is, see Ed's post) then you would be "replaceable" by com.ibm.icu.base. Later, PW
