Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] i18n4data Proposal
Date Sat, 02 Feb 2008 00:59:16 GMT
 Hello,  Ahmad:

Thank you for your interesting in i18n4data.

i18n4data is an alternative to resource bundles. If one wants to shift from
resource bundles to i18n4data then he might need to move the messages from
resource bundles to a database table. At present my project is only focus on
i18n of user's data, which could not be done by resource bundles. It will be
helpful to include this transfer tool into i18n4data.

The proposal you mentioned is quite different from mine. You are thinking
about Business Application Framework, a very high level of development. The
i18n4data is only an tool to help an existing application to be in18ned.

Best regards,
