    Java 7 now has much better locale support. We originally started with Java 5 and decided not to use the built-in Java Locale class. We should look at the Java 7 locale class and create a thin LocaleId wrapper around it to get the functionality we need

    It does support "sr@latn", but you need to use LocaleId.fromPOSIXLocale("sr@latin")

    Locale ids with @ are a POSIX convention.

    Even the parent topic of the link provided in the initial report is "Setting the POSIX Locale"

    And with the LocaleId update to use ICU the rs@latin is also properly mapped to sr-Latn.
