Internationalizing Distributed Java Components - Issues and Proposals
Clyde Gerber - Lawson Software
Internationalization of distributed Java components introduces a new set of issues that must be addressed. Clients of a distributed component may be operating in a different locale or timezone than the locale or timez one of the server on which the distributed component is running. If the distributed component interacts with distributed components on other servers, the problem becomes even more interesting.
This session describes the issues involved in internationalizing distributed applications, and how these issues might be addressed by two Java community process proposals currently under discussion - JSR 92, Localizable Text, and JSR 150, Internationalization Service for J2EE.
