    JBoss and internationalization

    liemmn Newbie

      Hello all,

      We are planning to run JBoss in a Japanese environment. A few questions that spring to mind:

      1) Does JBoss work in a Japanese environment? Has it been tested?
      2) Is JBoss localized in any language other than English? Is it localizable? i.e., does JBoss use ResourceBundles to store its messages or, everything is hard-coded?
      3) If JBoss is localized, how can I invoke JBoss in a certain locale, or does it pick up the default locale of the system that it runs on?

      Thanks in advance!

          11 views and noone has tried running JBoss in a non-English environment? Has this stuff been tested for I18N?

            We discovered while testing that if the path that you install JBoss into contains a non-latin character, that JBoss will not start. In our case, we tried installing JBoss 3.2.5 on a Japanese Windows XP machine. The installation path contained japanese characters.

            c:\program files\Symantec\ESM Reporting Database Linkƒ\ƒ|\

            When we tried to start the server, we received the following error:

            Failed to boot JBoss:
            java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.jboss.system.server.ServerImpl
            at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(Unknown Source)
            at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)

            at org.jboss.Main$1.run(Main.java:395)
            at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

            We recognized this as a classpath issue so we started adding jar files to the classpath and retrying. After about 5 files added, the ClassNotFoundExceptions went away and we started getting errors about opening and reading conf files.

            When we installed JBoss to a directory path that did not contain japanese characters, it run just fine. It appears that the JBoss launcher does not like japanese characters in the installation path.

              Does jboss-5.0.0.GA starts if the installation path contains Japanese characters? If yes please specify the configuraion. Its not working for me.
