translatedfiles : Small NetBeans plugin to detect un-necessary files

In translatedfiles.netbeans.org, we're doing localization of NetBeans UI messages into several languages. The source codes (almost .properties files) are stored in cvs.netbeans.org under translatedfiles/src. Many contributors are integrating their responsible files into the source directory. But sometime we did integrate wrong file by mistake, for example,
  • english files
  • file extension is not correct
  • target directory is not correct
I have set up a cronjob in my Solaris box and run several validation scripts everyday. Pulling the sources from cvs and run the script. These results are being uploaded automatically to the translatedfiles.netbeans.org web site. This is useful itself, however it's a post-integration approach. So I was thinking it would be nice if I could provide some scripts to contributors and they could use it before the integration. The problem is that my scripts are sh and perl scripts that run on Solaris. It's not easy to share them because most contributors are using Windows. So I decided to make NetBeans plugins for contributors of translatedfiles.netbeans.org.

This is my first plugin, it's very very small and simple. The instruction has been posted to translatedfiles.netbeans.org.
After you install plugin, select folders that contain localized files, then select Find Un-Necessary Files from context menu.



The plugin is searching and checking the target file is localized file or not. The results will be displayed in Output window like below.
