Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] i18n4data Proposal
Date Sat, 02 Feb 2008 07:00:13 GMT
Hi,

In OFBiz we have taken another but similar approach using XML as repository (and not a real
database), please see  :

http://www.nabble.com/XML-properties-files---brainstorm-td13955196.html#a13955196
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-1442

There is currently an effort to migrate all our properties files to XML files.
