      Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        $ LANG=C java -version
        java version "9-ea"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 9-ea+159)
        Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 9-ea+159, mixed mode)


        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Linux rhxxxxx.microfocus.com 2.6.32-131.0.15.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue May 10 15:42:40 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

        EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
        The locale must be set to Japanese ShiftJIS.

        $ export LANG=ja_JP.SJIS
        $ locale
        LANG=ja_JP.SJIS
        LC_CTYPE="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_NUMERIC="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_TIME="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_COLLATE="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_MONETARY="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_MESSAGES="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_PAPER="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_NAME="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_ADDRESS="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_TELEPHONE="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_MEASUREMENT="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_IDENTIFICATION="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_ALL=
        $

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        Invoking 'java' with the locale set to 'ja_JP.SJIS' fails immediately. Even to get the output from 'java -version' I have to temporarily set LANG to C (see the Development Kit or Runtime version).

        REGRESSION. Last worked in version 8u121

        ADDITIONAL REGRESSION INFORMATION:
        java version "9-ea"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 9-ea+159)
        Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 9-ea+159, mixed mode)


        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Set the locale to be Japanese ShiftJIS - on Linux this is 'ja_JP.SJIS'.

        $ export LANG=ja_JP.SJIS

        ... check the locale...

        $ locale
        LANG=ja_JP.SJIS
        LC_CTYPE="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_NUMERIC="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_TIME="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_COLLATE="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_MONETARY="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_MESSAGES="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_PAPER="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_NAME="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_ADDRESS="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_TELEPHONE="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_MEASUREMENT="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_IDENTIFICATION="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_ALL=

        .. which should be what you set, i.e. ja_JP.SJIS.
        .. And run java.

        $ java

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        The usual Java usage options - in Japanese.
        But if I set 'LC_MESSAGES' to C I can read it (I can't read Japanese!) and more importantly at this point, cut and paste it...

        $ export LC_MESSAGES=C
        $ java
        Usage: java [-options] class [args...]
                   (to execute a class)
           or java [-options] -jar jarfile [args...]
                   (to execute a jar file)
        where options include:
        ... and so on

        ACTUAL -
        $ export LANG=ja_JP.SJIS
        $ locale
        LANG=ja_JP.SJIS
        LC_CTYPE="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_NUMERIC="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_TIME="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_COLLATE="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_MONETARY="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_MESSAGES="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_PAPER="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_NAME="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_ADDRESS="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_TELEPHONE="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_MEASUREMENT="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_IDENTIFICATION="ja_JP.SJIS"
        LC_ALL=
