[edit] Babel Resource Bundle Editor

The Eclipse Babel Resource Bundle Editor is a plug-in that helps developers edit Java resource bundles. It allows developers to manage all localized properties files in one screen. Some features: sorted keys, warning icons on missing keys/values, conversion to/from Unicode, hierarchical view of keys, more...

[edit] Getting Started

The Messages Bundle Editor may be installed from source as follows.

1. Connect to the CVS repository at :pserver:anonymous@dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/technology and go to org.eclipse.babel/plugins. Checkout the following plug-ins:

org.eclipse.babel.core

org.eclipse.babel.editor

org.eclipse.babel.editor.nls (optional)

2. Find a resource properties file from one of your projects. Open the editor on that file. Note that all the localized versions of the file are treated as one resource and will open the same editor to edit them all.

3. Select "Open Localization Editor" from the "Edit" menu. An editor will be opened that allows you to see all the messages across the projects.

It might seem to you that these two editors were developed by different people, as they do essentially the same thing but take different approaches. You would be correct. This plug-in is the result of two contributions and work is planned to better merge these.
