Java ResourceBundle Class

Java.util package provides a ResourceBundle class which contain locale-specific objects. When a program needs a locale-specific resource, a String for example, the program can load it from the resource bundle that is appropriate for the current user's locale. In this way, program code can be written in a way which is largely independent of the user's locale isolating most, if not all, of the locale-specific information in resource bundles. This allows to write programs that can:

  • be easily localized, or translated, into different languages.
  • handle multiple locales at once.
  • be easily modified later to support even more locales.
