 Zaval Java Resource Editor (JRC-Editor) Version 2.0 released!
Since JDK 1.1.x. Sun introduced Internationalization concept for Java.

  Internationalization is the process of designing an application so that it can be adapted to various languages and regions without engineering changes.
Localization is the process of adapting software for a specific region or language by adding locale-specific components and translating text.
  The JavaTM Tutorial

The text used in programs is locale dependent, that's why we store all text strings in the separate files as a key-value pairs. When we need to localize a program for yet another language support we have to translate values in these files to the desired language. And that's all! These files are called resources. We provide GUI tool to manipulate these resources. The files being produced by this tool is fully compatible with ResourceBundle expectations.

So, the Zaval JRC Editor (also known as Zaval Java Resource Editor) solution is small and easy-to-use visual editor for resource files.

 Zaval Java Resource Editor is a way to manage closed source localization in Java
The Zaval JRC Editor is best used for regular access to various resource files. You can add your own language support to the existing software if strings are not hard-coded to the software. One of the greatest things in the internationalization is that you don't need to make code changes.

Another great area in this tool usage is resource bundle synchronization. Our tool can handle this task easily - it compares the files set and highlights all differences. It allows separating development process and resource management process. That's why this tool can be used as part of your software pack to provide 3rd party localization.
