Subject [jira] Reopened: (FOR-936) Forrest "looses" the locale when switching pages
Date Thu, 05 Oct 2006 01:51:24 GMT
     [ ]

David Crossley reopened FOR-936:

Reopening because this doesn't work with Cocoon command-line. I reverted the patch.

See the forrestbot results:
... org.apache.cocoon.environment.commandline.CommandLineRequest.getLocales() method not yet

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Launch 'forrest run', Core operations, Internationalisation (i18n)
>    Affects Versions: 0.8-dev
>            Reporter: Sjur N. Moshagen
>             Fix For: 0.8-dev
>         Attachments: sticky-locale-patch.txt
> When moving from one page to another and switching locales in between, the chosen locale
is lost when entering the new page. To reproduce:
> 1) set up and run forrest with i18n ON
> 2) open a localized page
> 3) switch locale by appending '?locale=XY' in the address field
> 4) open another page available in both the original locale (before the switch) and the
new locale XY
> 5) notice how the new page is displayed in the original locale, NOT the expected XY locale
> Although one could argue that the described behaviour is wanted in some cases, I believe
that to most users it would be natural that the locale is "sticky" once changed - it should
not change back by itself. Thus, the "sticky" behaviour should be default in Forrest.
> The fix is simple, patch to come soon.
