The Cndnsd Vrsn: 4pm Tuesday September 9 ACS Rm 123 - Dr. Bruce Haddon: Internationalization with emphasis on Java
Internationalization of software is becoming increasingly
important as the distribution of software becomes global. In the
case of Java, distribution is immediate and automatic, to all
parts of the WWW.
Java Internationalization Specification described the
intended support capabilities of the Java JDK 1.1 release. In
this talk, these capabilities are described. The extent to which
these meet the needs of internationalization will be examined,
and evaluated from the points of view of the use of these
capabilities by programmers, and the support that is given to
subsequent localization. The area of concentration will be the
Resource Bundle mechanism, and the interaction of this with
the support of
Locales in the AWT, but other areas in the JDK
1.1 pertinent to internationalization will be surveyed.
Dr. Bruce K. Haddon is Senior Technologist with Redcape
Software, Inc., a Boulder start-up innovating and licensing
Policy Management technology, developing a reference
implementation of the technology in Java. Bruce has been
involved with internationalization and localization issues for a
decade and a half, has worked in Australia, Germany,
Switzerland, France and the US, and is beginning to feel he
understands a little Java after a year's use.
