Subject [jira] Updated: (HUPA-21) Automatic use the right locale (depending on the users locale)
Date Sat, 14 Nov 2009 11:17:39 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HUPA-21?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Manuel Carrasco updated HUPA-21:

    Attachment: locale_detection.patch

This patch includes client side language selection in order to load the appropriate internationalised
 gwt javascript code. It doesn't use any server call, and the normal ways in gwt to set the
language (using url locale parameter, locale metatag, or window.__gwt_Locale variable) continue

The user language reported by the browser is just the language used for the application (menus,
messages, etc), it is not the Accept-Language header configurable by the user in most browsers,
which is only available in server side.

I think this patch covers a hight percentage of cases. For instance it works fine when an
user selects the language at login time in linux, Mac, etc, and with the default user's language
in windows. For the rest of cases we can put links with the supported languages in the login

To cover all the user cases we would need server side code to rewrite the Hupa.html page with
the language detected once analysed the request headers, or we need to make an Ajax call to
ask the server.  

I think the last approach introduces complexity which isn't worth it. 

What do you guys think?

> Hupa should use the "default" locale of the users webbrowser by default. This is possible
using some classes of the gwt-incubater.
