    • Method Detail

      • setBasename

        public void setBasename(java.lang.String basename)
        Set a single basename, following the basic ResourceBundle convention of not specifying file extension or language codes. The resource location format is up to the specific MessageSource implementation.

        Regular and XMl properties files are supported: e.g. "messages" will find a "messages.properties", "messages_en.properties" etc arrangement as well as "messages.xml", "messages_en.xml" etc.

        Parameters:
        basename - the single basename
        See Also:
        setBasenames(java.lang.String...), ResourceEditor, ResourceBundle
      • setBasenames

        public void setBasenames(java.lang.String... basenames)
        Set an array of basenames, each following the basic ResourceBundle convention of not specifying file extension or language codes. The resource location format is up to the specific MessageSource implementation.

        Regular and XMl properties files are supported: e.g. "messages" will find a "messages.properties", "messages_en.properties" etc arrangement as well as "messages.xml", "messages_en.xml" etc.

        The associated resource bundles will be checked sequentially when resolving a message code. Note that message definitions in a previous resource bundle will override ones in a later bundle, due to the sequential lookup.

        Note: In contrast to addBasenames(java.lang.String...), this replaces existing entries with the given names and can therefore also be used to reset the configuration.

        Parameters:
        basenames - an array of basenames
        See Also:
        setBasename(java.lang.String), ResourceBundle
      • addBasenames

        public void addBasenames(java.lang.String... basenames)
        Add the specified basenames to the existing basename configuration.

        Note: If a given basename already exists, the position of its entry will remain as in the original set. New entries will be added at the end of the list, to be searched after existing basenames.

      • getBasenameSet

        public java.util.Set<java.lang.String> getBasenameSet()
        Return this MessageSource's basename set, containing entries in the order of registration.

        Calling code may introspect this set as well as add or remove entries.

      • setDefaultEncoding

        public void setDefaultEncoding(@Nullable
                                       java.lang.String defaultEncoding)
        Set the default charset to use for parsing properties files. Used if no file-specific charset is specified for a file.

        The effective default is the java.util.Properties default encoding: ISO-8859-1. A null value indicates the platform default encoding.

        Only applies to classic properties files, not to XML files.

        Parameters:
        defaultEncoding - the default charset
      • getDefaultEncoding

        @Nullable
        protected java.lang.String getDefaultEncoding()
        Return the default charset to use for parsing properties files, if any.

      • setFallbackToSystemLocale

        public void setFallbackToSystemLocale(boolean fallbackToSystemLocale)
        Set whether to fall back to the system Locale if no files for a specific Locale have been found. Default is "true"; if this is turned off, the only fallback will be the default file (e.g. "messages.properties" for basename "messages").

        Falling back to the system Locale is the default behavior of java.util.ResourceBundle. However, this is often not desirable in an application server environment, where the system Locale is not relevant to the application at all: set this flag to "false" in such a scenario.

      • isFallbackToSystemLocale

        protected boolean isFallbackToSystemLocale()
        Return whether to fall back to the system Locale if no files for a specific Locale have been found.

      • setCacheSeconds

        public void setCacheSeconds(int cacheSeconds)
        Set the number of seconds to cache loaded properties files.
        • Default is "-1", indicating to cache forever (just like java.util.ResourceBundle).
        • A positive number will cache loaded properties files for the given number of seconds. This is essentially the interval between refresh checks. Note that a refresh attempt will first check the last-modified timestamp of the file before actually reloading it; so if files don't change, this interval can be set rather low, as refresh attempts will not actually reload.
        • A value of "0" will check the last-modified timestamp of the file on every message access. Do not use this in a production environment!

        Note that depending on your ClassLoader, expiration might not work reliably since the ClassLoader may hold on to a cached version of the bundle file. Prefer ReloadableResourceBundleMessageSource over ResourceBundleMessageSource in such a scenario, in combination with a non-classpath location.

      • setCacheMillis

        public void setCacheMillis(long cacheMillis)
        Set the number of milliseconds to cache loaded properties files. Note that it is common to set seconds instead: setCacheSeconds(int).
        • Default is "-1", indicating to cache forever (just like java.util.ResourceBundle).
        • A positive number will cache loaded properties files for the given number of milliseconds. This is essentially the interval between refresh checks. Note that a refresh attempt will first check the last-modified timestamp of the file before actually reloading it; so if files don't change, this interval can be set rather low, as refresh attempts will not actually reload.
        • A value of "0" will check the last-modified timestamp of the file on every message access. Do not use this in a production environment!
