Encdec encodes and decodes C objects such as integers, IEEE754 float and double values, times, and internationalized strings to and from popular binary formats and a wide variety of character encodings as they might appear in various file formats or network messages. It is compiled directly against the libiconv sources.
Eigenbase Resource Generator (ResGen) generates wrapper classes for Java resource bundles. The generated classes contain a 'get' method for every resource string, with parameters appropriate to the parameters embedded in the resource string. If the resource is some kind of exception, it also generates a 'new' method to create an instance of that exception. C++ generation is also supported.
Java+ is a Java preprocessor that adds its features to any Java compiler. It has long, multi-line strings with executable inclusions like Perl or Ruby, optionally segregates Java+ strings into ResourceBundle files, eliminates the need for JSP or ASP and their implied need for Java compilers on deployment servers (a security concern), and adds absolutely no overhead in either space or time. There are graphical and command line interfaces, and a simple, general, and recursive string syntax.
I18NEdit manages internationalized properties for Java programs and features a PHP adapter class for them. All property bundles are shown in a tree, and each property is editable directly in all available localisations. I18NEdit keeps track of changes in a source locale and presents the translator only what has been altered since his last translation session. Distributed working groups are supported by merging features.
The XView4Struts project is an extension to the Jakarta Struts Framework. Its main purpose is to eliminate the need to use tag libraries and JSP pages. The view is pure HTML, and interaction between the view and the model is transparent to the developer. This approach offers faster development, better division of work, a more pure MVC design pattern, reusable view components, and easier maintenance.
Prologia-I18N allows easy internationalization in extracting hard-coded strings from Java sources. A GUI allows you to decide which string should be internationalized. A front-end to the Attesoro software is provided to allow easy editing of resource bundles. Finally, your Java sources are automatically modified in order to use localized strings located in resourceBundles rather than hard-coded strings.
cpdetector is a small yet clever framework for codepage detection that integrates different strategies. It may be used as a library for third party software that accesses textual data over network. It also includes a best-practice implementation in form of a command line tool that allows sorting and transforming large collections of documents based on their codepage. Available strategies include: jchardet (exclusion, frequency analysis, and guessing), detection of the HTML charset property, and detection of the XML encoding declaration.
The zen Platform is a Java development environment for J2SE/J2EE. It eases and accelerates the Java application development by visual methods (RAD). Complete applications can be modelled in an intuitive fashion without the need for technical expertise. The complexity of Java and J2EE programming is tremendously hidden - reducing the learning curve for Java novices. Java experts are by no means restricted - they may apply their knowledge without limitations. Application flexibility is a core feature of the platform, which is delivered as an Eclipse plugin.
JInto is a plugin for Eclipse that lets the developer easily edit and maintain resource bundles (files that hold the localized strings for an application). It features parallel editing of all language versions (side by side), warnings when no text has been provided for a specific key, or when the text for one key is identical for different languages, and a search wizard to locate unused strings (strings that are referenced, but not actually defined in the resource bundle). It has been tested under Windows and Linux.
