In a previous project the manner in which we were handling i18n was the url entered by user would have the locale data

http://localhost:8080/i18n/showList?ln=en_US for US english

http://localhost:8080/i18n/showList?ln=fr_FR for French

The question - can we trap locale data without passing data in the querystring ?

theoretically yes. Practically no.
The preferred locale from the browser is passed in the HTTP request but many people never set this up so the locale their browser passes to the server may well not be the one they want to use and they'll likely not know how to change it.
