Hi there,

We have our own TimeZoneNameProvider implementation. It looks Java does 
not pick up localized names from our implementation when long standard 
name translation is not available for the ID and locale (in other words, 
getDisplayName(ID, false, TimeZone.LONG, locale) returns null).  That 
means, you cannot provide only short name translation by an SPI 

If this behavior is intended, the API documentation should clearly state 
the condition.  I personally think that Java should pick up names even a 
provider supports a subset although.

Should I file a bug for this problem?
