[GRADLE-3470] Non-english Locale can affect command-line arguments to Gradle and Javadoc Created: 03/Jun/16  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

When locale is Turkish and we try to determine the type of console output, we use the current JVM locale to convert the user arguments into lower case.

With --console=PLAIN, we convert PLAIN to lowercase. This is plaın (note the dotless i) and then we capitalize it (Plaın). This doesn't match any enum values in ConsoleOutput.

Similarly, when we send arguments to Javadoc, we make them lowercase in EnumJavadocOptionFileOption. This call to toLowerCase is sensitive to the current locale, so JavadocOutputLevel.QUIET becomes quıet.

Workaround is to explicitly set the locale of the JVM to an english locale.
