Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 46488] New: Missing i18n support in ANT
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2009 13:24:47 GMT

           Summary: Missing i18n support in ANT
           Product: Ant
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: Core tasks

Industry standard implementation of 
internationalization is without the doubt 
GNU GetText. 

1) Gettext has java integration.

2) GetText is available for windows

3) Comfortable translation tools such as poedit exists
for common platforms.

4) Even eclipse has it own po editor

5) But there are no gettext ANT tasks.
One feels little disappointed that industry
standard automation tool is not ready
for internationalization of applications.

At least ...
xgetext to extract and merge messages from java files and
msgfmt to compile po = portable object files to java ResourceBundles
... should be provided.
