Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4763) i18n properties files should be converted to ascii at build time.
Date Sun, 26 Jul 2009 03:02:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4763?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12735344#action_12735344
] 

Shawn Jiang commented on GERONIMO-4763:
---------------------------------------


{noformat}
- everything is in ascii unicode escape sequences all the time (is this what we have now?)

{noformat}
                yes

{noformat}
- everything is in utf-8 all the time (svn, checked out source code, any compiled property
files

{noformat}

- utf-8 in svn and checkout and unicode escape after compilation



The problem is with resource bundles. For resouce bundle, Properties files are always read
as ISO-8859-1. As a result, To include Unicode characters in i18n properties file, we must
use \uXXXX escapes(with native2ascii tool).

> Current i18n properties files are stored in source code repo after they are converted
to ascii from native offline.  It's very hard to contribute new translations.
> We should keep native characters in source code while convert them to ascii at build
time. maven plugin native2ascii-maven-plugin could be used here:
