This quick start demonstrates the use of JBoss Logging Tools to create internationalized loggers, exceptions, and generic messages; and then provide localizations for them. This is done using a simple JAX-RS service. Translations in French(fr-FR), German(de-DE), and Swedish (sv-SE) are provided courtesy of http://translate.google.com for demonstration. My apologies if they are less than ideal translations.
Once the quick start is deployed you can access it using URLs documented below.
Instructions are included below for starting JBoss EAP with a different locale than the system default.
The application this project produces is designed to be run on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1 or later.
All you need to build this project is Java 6.0 (Java SDK 1.6) or later, Maven 3.0 or later.
If you have not yet done so, you must Configure Maven before testing the quickstarts.
To start the JBoss EAP server with a different locale than the system default:
Edit the file and append commands to set the JVM parameters for the required country and language.
Eg. Germany and German,
JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Duser.country=DE" JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Duser.language=de" This can be done as a single line if you prefer: JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Duser.country=DE -Duser.language=de"
The following shows the command line to start the server:
For Linux: EAP_HOME/bin/standalone.sh For Windows: EAP_HOME\bin\standalone.bat
NOTE: The following build command assumes you have configured your Maven user settings. If you have not, you must include Maven setting arguments on the command line. See Build and Deploy the Quickstarts for complete instructions and additional options.
Type this command to build and deploy the archive:
mvn clean install jboss-as:deploy
target/jboss-logging-tools.warto the running instance of the server.
Note: You may see the following warnings in the server log.
[WARNING] logging-tools/src/main/java/org/jboss/as/quickstarts/loggingToolsQS/exceptions/GreeterExceptionBundle.java:[25,8] Generating translation class.

This is due to a bug in the Maven compiler plug-in where all CompilerMessages are logged at warning or error level, even if they are not warnings or errors. A fix has been submitted but has not yet been applied. Details can be found here: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MCOMPILER-224.
The application will be running at the following URL: http://localhost:8080/jboss-logging-tools/
This landing page provides details and links to test the quickstart features. You can also directly access the following URLs.

If the supplied locale is invalid (in this case if it contains more than 3 components, eg. fr-FR-POSIX-FOO), it throws a
WebApplicationException (404) using a localizable sub-class of
WebApplicationException cannot be directly localized by JBoss Logging Tools using the
@Message annotation due to the message parameter being ignored by the
WebApplicationException constructors. Cases like this can be worked around by creating a subclass with a constructor that does deal with the message parameter.

When you are finished testing, type this command to undeploy the archive:
You can also start the server and deploy the quickstarts from Eclipse using JBoss tools. For more information, see Use JBoss Developer Studio or Eclipse to Run the Quickstarts
If you want to debug the source code or look at the Javadocs of any library in the project, run either of the following commands to pull them into your local repository. The IDE should then detect them.
mvn dependency:sources mvn dependency:resolve -Dclassifier=javadoc
