Hi all,

Please help with below question regarding the localization. Thanks.

A sample program ships with 2 properties files -, If the current Locale, Locale.ENGLISH has no matching properties file, what will happen when the ResourceBundle.getBundle method is called with 'Base' and Locale. English as parameters?

A Since a matching properties file is not found, an exception is thrown

B This would not pose a problem because when a matching properties file is not found, the default properties file is used instead.

"B" is correct. If the matching properties file is not found, the default is used instead.
