Re: Generation of permutations

I think the "best practice" is to decide which locale is your "primary" locale and:
  • define it as the fallback locale, and
  • use non-suffixed properties file for that locale
and accept that a permutation for the "default" locale might be generated (should be the case as soon as you use locale-sensitive number or date formatting, if you only have messages then the "default" and "your primary" locale would possibly generate the same code and thus a single permutation).

But using <set-property name="locale" value="de,en" /> (i.e. your supported locales minus "default") should work I believe (John, who's the maintainer for the I18N stuff, said somewhere in the issue tracker that he wouldn't recommend it as it could break things in unpredictable ways, so I'd say if generating an extra permutation is really a problem for you, try removing the "default" locale and see if that works for you)

I'm getting just two permutations - great!

But I still need the file. Otherwise I'm still getting the above error message "No resource found for key...".

Even after adding

<set-property-fallback name="locale" value="de_DE" />

I still get that exception.

Only if I restrict my app to one locale by changing
<set-property name="locale" value="de_DE,en_US" />
<set-property name="locale" value="de_DE" />
it i compiled without the existance of but I'm loosing the possibility to switch between de_DE and en_US then.
