Internationalization

Overview

Usage

  • Source -> Find Strings to Externalize
  • Choose file; don't select metamodel files.
  • Find the Configure button.
    • Source folder: seg.jUCMNav/src (both locations)
    • Package: seg.jUCMNav (both locations)
    • Property filename: messages_en.properties (use browse wizard; don't type directly or some bugs occur)
  • Remove the filter all existing ignored and externalized entries checkbox. See problem below.
  • Enter a good key for new entries, make sure you don't overwrite old ones.
  • Existing strings will get marked as errors for some dumb reason. Use the revert button (not icon), not externalize or ignore. See problem below.

Problems we've encountered

  • The internationalization wizard (Eclipse 3.0 at least) isn't very intuitive at first. You have to play with it a bit to understand how it works.
  • Warning: Please verify what it has done before committing. It sometimes replaces entries in the messages file with empty strings!!!
  • The wizard doesn't load the existing string, accepting will flush the existing entry.
