On the Internet, there are almost no barriers against international commerce. Except for language. Unfortunately, most software is still written in English. Java Internationalization shows how to write software that is truly multi-lingual, using Unicode, a standard system that supports hundreds of character sets for most modern languages and many ancient ones. English-only software is already obsolete. Java Internationalization brings Java developers up to speed on the new generation of software development: writing software that is no longer limited by language boundaries.
This book explores Java Unicode and provides concrete examples for using its features to create multilingual user interfaces; to correctly format currency, dates and times; and to ensure font support for different languages.
