Subject [jira] Created: (OFBIZ-129) Automatic Translation of view entity fields from the real entity linked to the view
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2006 22:04:16 GMT
Automatic Translation of view entity fields from the real entity linked to the view
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: OFBIZ-129
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-129
             Project: OFBiz (The Open for Business Project)
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: framework
    Affects Versions: SVN trunk
         Environment: Windows
            Reporter: Marco Risaliti
            Priority: Minor


I have seen that in same forms the heading of the fields was not translated and checking in
to the source I have verified that in case of using the view entity those fields was not translated
automatically from the real entity linked to the view.
The first solution can be to insert also the view entities into the EntityLabels properties
file but in this case a lot of replication of data will be happened.
To be more clear I will try to explain with an example.
A lot of fields into the forms use the view entity UomAndType that can be used to show the
type and unit of misure.
In this case I will have to create the following row into CommonEntityLabels.properties  :
UomType.description.LENGTH_MEASURE=Length
Uom.description.LEN_cm=Centimeter

and to solve the view entity issue I had to insert also this row in the same property file
UomAndType.description.LEN_cm.LENGTH_MEASURE=Centimeter
UomAndType.typeDescription.LEN_cm.LENGTH_MEASURE=Length

This cause a lot of data replication into the EntityLabels properties and so I prefer that
the Entity Engine will retrieve automatically the translation of the heading of the fields
from the real entity linked to the view.
I have modified the GenericEntity.get() method to apply this new mechanism that you can find
attached to this issue.
I have tried this patch a lot but I prefer if some of the major expert of OFBIZ can test it
before commits because this method it's hugely into the forms.
In the patch you can find also the new header for this class and you can find also Valid Status
Change for Shipment to test this new mechanism.
I wait for you feedback on this patch and I'm at your disposal for discuss on it.

Thanks a lot
Marco
