Language Resource bundles are the pits

Question asked by rdanner on Sep 15, 2005
One thing I think we should discuss is the total abondonment of resource bundles for something more poweful and extensible (xml).  Resource bundles are hand to extend, one dimensional (well two dimensional) _LOCALE is pretty lame.


We need a resource description that we can add more dimensions to (LOCAL, APPLICATION STATE(S), etc).

It should be in XML.

we should be able to combine xml resources with actions like

<action:combine method="delete">
  <!– an xml block to delete –>
</action:combine>

<action:combine method="append">
  <!– an xml block to delete –>
</action:combine>

<action:combine method="replace">
  <!– an xml block to delete –>
</action:combine>

I think this is crucial to creating an appliation that can accept plugin functionality. IE. a new aspect or a new rule / action. 

any ideas?
