#1071 PeriodLabelAxisInfo createInstance() Method does not work

General (896)

The method createInstance() of the PeriodLabelAxisInfo class does not work since 1.0.14. The attached patch may help.

    I'm not sure what you mean by 'does not work'. Could you provide an example of some code that fails? I added a small unit test:

    * A test for the createInstance() method.
    public void testCreateInstance() {
    PeriodAxisLabelInfo info = new PeriodAxisLabelInfo(Day.class,
    new SimpleDateFormat("d"));
    Day d = (Day) info.createInstance(new Date(0L),
    TimeZone.getTimeZone("GMT"), Locale.UK);
    assertEquals(new Day(1, 1, 1970), d);

    ...and that works as expected. Looking at the PeriodAxisLabelInfo class, I think it would be possible to specify a 'Class' that is not a subclass of RegularTimePeriod and that would generate an exception in this method, but in that case nothing is going to work anyway.

    If you can clarify the bug, I'll take another look.

    Closing this, I reviewed it again and I still don't see anything to fix.
