Subject Re: [configuration] Re: Loading proeprteis according local

I have been considering either adding something to commons  
configuration, but more probably creating a new project to do this (or  
repurposing commons i18n).

The idea is that you want to have XML files that contain  
internationalized message text. XML because it has a proper way of  
specifying the encoding. But it would probably use the  
java.util.Properties XML schema. Then you would have a combined  
configuration that aggregates the files together in the manner  
described in the ResourceBundle javadoc. In my case, I also need to  
add in another factor - allowing the localized files to be overridden  
per "business client" for multi-tenant support.  Ideally, this  
framework should then be able to be plugged in underneath Spring's  
MessageSource API, Struts' MessageResources API or even the Java 6  
ResourceBundle.Control.  Of course, it should also be able to be used  

Basic localization can be done today in 1.7-SNAPSHOT with  
DefaultConfigurationBuilder, DynamicCombinedConfiguration and a set of  
MultiFileHierarhicalConfigurations. Just make sure that the pattern  
specified in the DynamicCombinedConfiguration and  
MultiFileHierarchicalConfigurations contains the variable for the  
locale.  All the framework I am proposing would do would be to wrap  
this in a standard way and provide a suitable API.
