Subject [jira] [Created] (PIVOT-940) Localisation Using a Non Class Related File
Date Fri, 04 Apr 2014 07:27:14 GMT
Mark Chambers created PIVOT-940:

             Summary: Localisation Using a Non Class Related File
                 Key: PIVOT-940
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIVOT-940
             Project: Pivot
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: core-json, core-serialization, wtk
    Affects Versions: 2.0.3
         Environment: ALL
            Reporter: Mark Chambers
            Priority: Minor

Currently it seems that the resources in Pivot are done that same way as the JDK, so .json
files are associated with the classes. 
Since anybody working in an International software industries has to deal with the problem
of continualy having to translate applications languages, it seems strange to have to wrap
up the languages with the Class Files.
Ideally an external file, should be able to be specified, like the bxml file... That is sitting
somewhere with the other resource files, configuration files etc...
No reason to link it too the class, since 95% of class are not even GUI components, and the
way Apache Pivot does it is has a single GUI class, so why bother linking it to the Class...And
it is relevant to the bxml files not the classes...
Also means that when you wrap it up in a Jar for deployment the language files can be sitting
outside, so distributors and resellers, or open source community members etc. can make the
application support their language themselves, just by copying,renaming and modifying the
Language file...means we can obfuscate jars easier etc...
