Developing Global Applications in Java

Richard Gillam - Trilogy Software, Inc.

Intended Audience: Manager, Software Engineer, Systems Analyst
Session Level: Beginner

Global markets are becoming more and more important to the success of software developers. As the American and Western European markets reach maturity, more companies are finding that the areas of large growth lie overseas, and selling software into international markets requires that the software is properly internationalized-- that is, that it can be translated easily for each new market.

The Java language and class libraries have one of the most extensive collections of features to support software internationalization available, making Java an excellent choice not only for developing software that can run in a cross-platform environment, but also for developing software that can run in a multilingual world. This talk will cover all of the internationalization APIs in the Java Class Libraries in depth, showing why they are important and how they are used, including insider's tips on how to use them most effectively. It will also show how to avoid common pitfalls that make a program much more difficult to internationalize.
