Internationalizing Your Applications


In this chapter you looked briefly at locales and resource bundles. You learned how the formatting for dates and currency vary with locale and how you need to keep this in mind when producing applications for an international market.

To make your applications internationalized and localized, you used MessageFormat and ChoiceFormat in conjunction with resource bundles. This has enabled the appropriate information to be displayed for the locale in which the application is run.

Because characters can vary from language to language, you’ve had to learn a little about parsing characters. BreakIterator is there to help you with this.
