Description nandkishor.nema 2002-09-16 18:26:09 UTC
Due to high volume of properties file for different language, we have to create 
separate directory for each language/country *.properties file. 

When defining resource bundle base name in bundle tag..I need to specify 
direcory path and *.property file name. In case if the file is not present...I 
get exception saying the ResourceBundle is not found. 

One way of getting rid of this problem is that I can keep 
ResourceBundle.properties file in each language/coutry directory but this will 
be unneccesary ...

What I want to do is to use en_US language/directory as default directory for 
all properties file in case a property file of other langauge is not present.

I can do this in JSP by handling eception using try and catch....But it would 
be really good if we can change BundleTag.java to handle this functionality.

Thanks & Regards

JSTL replaced the i18n taglib, so this won't be worked on.
