Externalizing strings to feature.properties fails [message #50020] Tue, 10 March 2009 17:39 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm trying to externalize my Strings from my feature.xml to
feature.properties and from my plugin.xml to plugin.properties. I followed
numerous examples, but it just fails. I'm using the correct notations, I'm
including the feature.properties in my binary build, the feature is
packaged correctly in the JAR. However, when I install it, I still get the
featureName constant instead of the actual name.

BTW, should the substitution work when launching and debugging through
PDE, too?

Thanks,
Zviki

The manifest file must include a line like this:
Bundle-Localization: plugin

(where "plugin" is the name of the file that contains the externalized
strings, eg "plugin.properties").

For a feature, it is usually
Bundle-Localization: feature

(with a corresponding "feature.properties" file).

Hope this helps,
Eric
