NetBeans 6.1 L10N Platform Engineering Process (for Community Language)



There are big two changes in engineering process at NetBeans 6.1 releases:


New versioning system of netbeans.org. Our home repository is : http://hg.netbeans.org/release61/l10n. You can get our files by

% hg clone http://hg.netbeans.org/release61/l10n

l10n-kit structure

The structure of l10n-kit has been also changed dynamically. We now use the same(almost) structure of nbm/jar files. Please check the detail in NB6.1MLPlan

  • The top directory is based on cluster name, the 2nd directory is based on nbm name
  • All .properties files are generated from nbm/jar files, which means most comment lines are removed. Only #NOI18N comment are there.
