Subject Re: Properties file UTF-8
Date Tue, 02 Nov 2010 16:47:14 GMT
If in the next release Click will have a pluggable messages Map this could resolve most 
of the problems, in fact as of now one must modify the click jar!
If click targets java 1.5 it seems that the only solution is the self made resource bundle
(given that the hack 
is not a very clean solution).

How the situation is handled in a  couple of existing framework:
properties file encoded in UTF-8 by default.
They are read using an hack, see

properties file read using ResourceBundle (so ISO8859)
Ability to use read XML based properties in UTF-8, see

properties file encoded in UTF-8 by default
It seems they are read using an hack, see
