Dear All,
Currently we are internationalization our application. The app is developed using struts framework. I am new to this stuff.
For intenationalization we need to take the default locale from property file and user specific locale from database. I dont know how to include this reading stuff in JSP. Plase help me.

Thanks & Regards,
Suresh Kumar.C

It might pay to read the struts documentation on i18n
Then come back and ask some more specific questions

You are going to have to choose between using Struts for your i18n and putting all your constants in properties files, or creating your own custom i18n solution and putting all your constants in database tables. Combining the two approaches is not likely to work very well.

I've got a multimedia demo that demonstrates how to add i18n support to a Struts application. It uses the internationalization facilities of Struts, including the Struts custom tags and the property files. I think it translates into French Spanish and English.

Just look for the link that says: i18n with Struts Custom Tags

I hope that gives you a bit of an idea on how to approach the problem.


I agree. Here's the link:
