Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-143) Unlocalized messages in user management
Date Fri, 25 Jan 2008 22:58:34 GMT


Andrew Jaquith commented on JSPWIKI-143:

The quick fix is pretty easy: just make sure that we initialize the various UserManager classes
with a reference to WikiEngine, which would allow us to retrieve the i18n manager and generate
a proper message.

HOWEVER, that's not quite the end of the story. These errors, in particular, are NOT internal
errors, but errors that ought to be thrown back to the end-user, and thus need to use the
locale of the web user (as opposed to the language of the JVM deployer or runtime). So, it
would probably be better to change the exception type to make it simply carry the message
key and the name of the user, rather than the error message itself. Web-tier JSPs and classes
with access to the user context should, instead, be responsible for creating a locale-specific

I agree that we probably need to re-think this a bit. The general strategy you suggest makes

The sad thing is that we are going to have to do this in lots more places than just here...
It really suggests that we ought to add special constructors to ALL custom JSPWiki Exception
types so that they can accept message keys and variable parameters. Yes, varargs would make
this MUCH easier...

>          Components: Localization
>    Affects Versions: 2.6.0
>            Reporter: Florian Holeczek
>            Priority: Minor
> When trying to create a new user with an existing name, the page says: 'The login name
'flo' is already taken.'
> I guess it's an Exception from UserManager. It's the same problem with full name (a few
lines down).
> Maybe there are the following mesages unlocalized, too:
> JDBCUserDatabase:
> throw new DuplicateUserException( "Cannot rename: the login name '" + newName + "' is
already taken." );
> XMLUserDatabase:
> throw ( new DuplicateUserException( "Cannot rename: the login name '" + newName + "'
is already taken." ) );
