Subject Best practices for changing Axis i18n error message content
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2002 17:07:45 GMT

At the bug scrub on Tuesday a question came up concerning the best
practices when changing i18n message content.  We have a message that
prints out a misleading error message.  If I want to change the content
of messageAbc00 to make it more intuitive for users, what is the
appropriate methodology?  On the call we came up with 2 options.

a) Simply change the content of messageAbc00 to be the appropriate
b) Create messageAbc01 with the appropriate content and add it to the
bottom of the messages file.  Then change the code to reference this new
message.  This option does not delete the original message content.

Please let me know how I should proceed.  If I don't hear from you I
will assume option B is the desired approach because it is slightly more
"correct" from the translation perspective.
