I've been reviewing some older apps that use sun.text.*, sun.text.resources.* According to the FAQ's sun.* packages should not be used. So what packages/classes should be used instead? I'm thinking java.text.* but its difficult to tell as there is deliberately no documentation on the sun.* packages.

Any help would be appreciated

Tony,

Thanks for taking the time to respond. Sorry for the cryptic question. I didn't have much information to go on but after reviewing the code I discovered out those classes were used to handle date and number formatting for a given locale. It took some researching but I figured out the classes I should be using are java.text.* plus java.util.Locale and TimeZone.

Problem solved. Phew ;-)
