Hi

I'm trying to run this code in order to see how Locale.getISOCountries() works:



When I run it, I get:


I've printed System.out.println(countries.length); and it's 0.

What might be the problem?

I'm working on Ubuntu 8.10 using:


Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

You're using GNU Java? It's well-known for being incomplete. Try downloading a standard Java implementation from Oracle instead.

Hi

Yes, I was using Gnu Java. I installed the last version of the JDK from Sun/Oracle and now works fine.

Thank you very much for the advise and the welcoming.

Best regards,
M
