My app will be installed on the company's intranet. It is designed to work in both english & welsh languages using resource bundles.
The problem is that only some of the intranet's areas are be in welsh so the browser is set to english - so the locale stuff won't work.
Links to my app will be put on the intranet, one each for english & welsh versions. What I need to do is pass a flag from these links to my app to indicate which language to use. I can't seem to pass the flag in!
Tried something like this "http://localhost:9001/"; hoping the lang attribute would be readable from the request object in the corresponding action class - but it's not - it's null!!!
How can I/is it possible to do this? - any ideas?

The lang attribute will be available as a paramter in the request not at an atribute, it is a request paramater not an object in the request object,
String lang = request.getParameter("lang");
that should give you the parameter
then you can set your locale.

Howdy "harryajh",
I'm gonna have to ask you to
change your publicly displayed name in your profile so it goes along with our Naming Policy. See'in as Sheriff Cindy asked you to do this a while back, I'd be much obliged if you won't mind takin' a minute to make sure it gets done here soon.
