This is a suggestion for an important improvement

With regard to the existed interface through DB connections(Services pane) and Editor intellisence(auto completion) in Netbeans, to reach a general way for all programming languages (whether supported in Netbeans or not) to have an auto-completion list for language resources, I think an XML DB Driver is the best choice.

We can have : En.resx , Fr.resx , Fa.resx
And the requirement is XML DB driver for netbeans so every one can maintain her/his language resources through "Services" Pane.
We may have three simultaneous db connections to the *.resx files in netbeans and have an special KW before the name of each element in the *.resx files. That KW causes Netbeans to show the auto-complete list of resources through the strings in the editor.

Currently I`m working php but if I was in c++ or java or C# and, having an XML connection to retrieve the resources was a simple task for me.

Maintaining language resources and fast accessibility is one of the significant axes for fast software development specially for Web Applications and of course Desktop Applications

Thank you
