Hi,

I am working on multilingual web application in struts. normally struts takes browser's language to display messages from properties file.

I need to provide a list box which will have German and English options. If user select German from list, application should use German language properties file (application should not take language code from browser). If user select English, application should use English language properties file.

How will i make sure struts use user's selected language in list instead of browser language code. currently in my application it is using browser's language code.

Thank you for your help and time
Ajay

The HttpResponse object has a method, 'setLocale(java.util.Locale loc)'.
If you pass the language selected in the HttpRequest, then call this method in the code that handles the request. Struts code should then use this Locale and the appropriate properties file to render the HTML code using the selected language.

The org.apache.struts.action.Action class (your action's superclass) has a setLocale method. Use it to set the locale according to the parameter passed in from the JSP.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
