3.8 Resource properties - Internationalization

If you are executing the JSM in a distributed or tiered architecture, the remote servers may exist in different countries. These servers may have specific regional or language requirements.

The Java Service Manager resource files are internationalized.

The resource files have a load hierarchy.

 

basefile.properties

basefile_language.properties

basefile_language_country.properties

 

Each property entry read will replace a previous property entry. This replacement can occur due to a duplicate key entry further down in the same file or duplicate entry in the later locale property files.

The locale is determined from the client program. A program running on a IBM i machine will supply its encoding and locale information to the JSM server.

Example

CCSID

037
LANGUAGEID ENG
COUNTRYID AU

 In this case, the JSM server will create a thread to handle the connection. This thread will use encoding Cp037 and locale EN_AU.

A single JSM server can handle multiple clients with different encoding and locale information.
