Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-4763) i18n properties files should be converted to ascii at build time.
Date Fri, 24 Jul 2009 06:34:14 GMT


David Jencks commented on GERONIMO-4763:

What are the options that will work here?  I can think of a few but I don't know which will

-- everything is in ascii unicode escape sequences all the time (is this what we have now?)
-- everything is in utf-8 all the time (svn, checked out source code, any compiled property
-- utf-8 in svn and checkout and unicode escape after compilation

The last two require that svn handle checkout and checkin of utf-8 files without problem on
various line-ending systems. Has anyone verified that this would work?  Also we might investigate
what these property files would look like in common IDES such as idea, eclipse, emacs, vim.

Assuming utf-8 in svn and IDEs works ok, why would we change to ascii during compilation?

> 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:
