(from mail conversation)

Certain literals that show up in the browser client are read from server-side literal files.

Example:
. the name of the days in the caldendar component
. the messages if the user does not input a correct e.g. int-value

In general all these literals are part of ".xml" files. Look into the WEB-INF/lib/eclntjfserver-xxx.jar:

Code:
 eclnt
     risc
         i18n
             language_en.xml
             language_de.xml
             ...
 


If you want to introduce a new language to the existing one: add a language_xx.xml file into your webcontent and it will be used. And then...: tell us about and send the file so that we can add to the standard! ;-)

What to do if there is already a language definition, but you do not like the text?

In this case there is an interface:

Code:
 package org.eclnt.jsfserver.util;
 public interface IClientI18NLiteralsUpdate
 {
     public void updateLiteralInfo(Map<String, LanguageInfo> data);
 }
 


You may implement this interface and register your implementation in system.xml:

Code:
     <clienti18n 
         ...
         clientliteralsupdateclass="...class implementing IClient18NLiteralsUpdate..."
         ...
     />
 


In the interface per language (key of the map) a LanguageInfo instance is kept:

Code:
     public static class LanguageInfo
     {
         List<String> m_monthNames = new ArrayList<String>();
         List<String> m_weekdayNamesShort = new ArrayList<String>();
         Map<String,String> m_literals = new HashMap<String,String>();
         public List<String> getMonthNames() { return m_monthNames; }
         public List<String> getWeekdayNamesShort() { return m_weekdayNamesShort; }
         public Map<String, String> getLiterals() { return m_literals; }
     }
 


You may access and change the corresponding String-lists and -maps by your code and by the update the client side literals.
