Advanced Java Globalization
Intended Audience: Software Engineers
Session Level: Advanced
This presentation describes how to improve the level of global support of Java code from "works most of the time" to "works all of the time". The focus is on specific problem areas we have identified in reviews of existing IBM product code. Some of the topics covered include:
Examples of how to code to avoid these problems and how to test for them.
The presentation is intended for anyone responsible for producing Java applications to be used in a multinational environment. Attendees should be familiar with the Java programming language, basic globalization concepts, and basic Unicode concepts. Writing applications with these points in mind will allow them to run in less common environments without costly customer support activity to repair failing code.
