Does anyone know exactly how the java system property user.country is determined on Solaris 9? I've got a really weird problem. If my admin does an "su - my_user_name" and runs a Java program, it will not have user.country set. This causes problems with my Weblogic server as locale-specific things like currency symbols are not resolved. I thought this was influenced by the "LC_" environment variables. I have them when I log in as my_user_name but admin doesn't have them when he su's in. He figured out that doing "su my_user_name" keeps his environment but that didn't seem to fix the user.country Java property. Any ideas?
