Rick Hillegas updated DERBY-5879:

    Attachment: derby-5879-02-aa-MessageIdmessages.diff

Attaching derby-5879-02-aa-MessageIdmessages.diff. This patch mostly fixes problems in messages
whose codes appear in MessageId. These are mostly capitalization errors. I have adjusted canonized
results so that the tests run cleanly.

Besides the capitalization errors, I also fixed a Store message (MessageId.STORE_BOOT_MSG).
This message involved appending a clause to the end of another message. This is the sort of
message concatenation which can be awkward for localization. I replaced the appended clause
with a separate message: MessageId.STORE_BOOT_MSG_READ_ONLY.

Touches the following files:


M       java/engine/org/apache/derby/loc/messages.xml
M       java/shared/org/apache/derby/shared/common/reference/MessageId.java

Actual changes to messages.


M       java/engine/org/apache/derby/impl/store/raw/data/BaseDataFileFactory.java

Needed to adjust the code which was concatenating two independently localized strings.


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

Changes to canonized message text in the tests.

> 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
> I am filing this issue as a place to hold patches which address issues raised by the
localization audit.
