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
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
not. The results will be displayed in Output window like below.
