Subject Re: How to handle a configuration problem generally in CXF code
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2008 20:17:45 GMT

I'd definitely prefer if the excpetion was on of the I18N things.   A 
LARGE chunk of our users are actually from China.  According to google 
analytics, China is #2 after the US.   It's definitely important to keep 
the option open to make this stuff localizable.  ESPECIALLY for 
configuration things where a non-developer might need to make changes.  
More "admin" like tasks.   

Note: if you have a Logger, you already have the bundle.   The i18n 
message can take the Logger instead of the bundle.
