Subject Multiple UiLabels definitions
Date Sun, 02 Mar 2008 23:12:28 GMT
while testing ecommerce application i have found that selecting the ITalian
language, some labels are displayed still in english.
I was convinced that this was because of a missing translation but the
reason was a little different:

Some labels are defined in more than one resource file. For example
"CommonQuickAdd" is both in EcommerceUiLabels.xml and in
But while the CommonUiLabels.xml is complete, in the
EcommerceUiLabels.xmlfile there is no italian label.

So what I think that could happen is that OFBiz tries to have an IT string
from the EcommerceUiLabels.xml file (the first one), this is not found and
so it falls back to what is specified in (locale.properties.fallback=en)
BEFORE checking if the IT string is present in other resource files.

I tryed to delete the incomplete <property key="CommonQuickAdd"> from the
EcommerceUiLabels.xml and now the italian string is correctly displayed
(because no fallback).
Also defining (locale.properties.fallback=it) it works because now, even the
CommonUiLabels.xml is looked for an italian string.

I see four options for me to solve the problem:
1) Add all italian strings to EcommerceUiLabels.xml even if they are already
present in CommonUiLabels.xml (I don't like because of redundancy)
2) Remove all the Common*** labels from EcommerceUiLabels.xml (any
3) Change to (locale.properties.fallback=it)
4) Change the way OFBiz scans for the locale strings in such a way that it
first merges all the files and THEN looks for the desired localization and
THEN if not found falls to the fallback (unluckly i am not able)

Any idea about this?
