Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-5879:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: derby-5879-03-aa-SQLStatemessages.diff

Attaching derby-5879-03-aa-SQLStatemessages.diff. This patch makes various changes to messages
in messages.xml with sql states in SQLState.java. I am running regression tests now.

Changes are mostly of these types:

1) Correcting capitalization and punctuation.

2) Removing unused messages.

3) Adding comments for translators.

I also corrected the capitalization of one message in toolsmessages.properties.

Touches the following files:

--------------

M       java/engine/org/apache/derby/loc/messages.xml
M       java/shared/org/apache/derby/shared/common/reference/SQLState.java
M       java/tools/org/apache/derby/loc/toolsmessages.properties

Corrections to message files.

--------------

M       java/engine/org/apache/derby/iapi/sql/dictionary/DefaultDescriptor.java

Removed an instance of inserting one localized string into another.

--------------

M       java/testing/org/apache/derbyTesting/functionTests/tests/lang/ErrorCodeTest.java

Corrected canonized results.

> The team which is localizing the 10.9 messages would like to audit our existing messages
to ensure that they are easy to translate. A quick glance at their audit results shows many
issues in the following categories:
> 1) Multi-line messages whose formatting confuses the translators. Translators tend to
be language experts and not experts in the arcana of how Java properties files are formatted.
I am hoping that these issues can be addressed by simply prefixing the multi-line messages
with comments, explaining the arcane formatting.
> 2) Grammar, punctuation, and capitalization problems. I think we should just clean these
up.
> I am filing this issue as a place to hold patches which address issues raised by the
localization audit.
