ResourceBundle not found

Hi experts,

I have a java program and two .properties files which are myResource.properties and myResource_ms_MY.properties. All there three files are in c:\myprogram folder.

The java program

import java.util.*;

public class ResourceBundleResearch
{
      public static void main(String[] args)
      {
            Locale locale1, locale2;
            ResourceBundle resourceBundle;
                  
            locale1 = Locale.getDefault();
            
            locale2 = new Locale("ms", "MY");

            resourceBundle = ResourceBundle.getBundle("myResource", locale2);
            System.out.println(resourceBundle.getString("Cancel"));


      }
}

myResources.properties

Cancel=CancelDetails
Enter=EnterDetails
Delete=DeleteDetails

myResources_ms_MY.properties

Cancel=Batal
Enter=Masuk
Delete=Padam

I have set the classpath to C:\myprogram

When i run the java program, i get

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: ResourceBundle

How can i rectify it? Thanks

ResourceBundle is part of the java sdk. Apparently that can't be found.
Have a thorough read of http://mindprod.com/jgloss/classpath.html

Which JDK are you using?  ResourceBundle has been around since JDK 1.1, do you have an older JDK installed that it's using?  To find out, at the command prompt do:

java -version

If you have an old one (possibly installed by windows), ensure that a newly downloaded versions location is first in the path.

zzynx - I don't have to do any with my classpath, isn't it? Since ResourceBundle is part of java API.......

Anyone can copy and paste my codes to run?

ricjavaAuthor Commented:
i thought "ms" is valid ISO lang code for malay and "MY" is valid iso code for Malaysia...........i'll check..

>>ResourceBundle is part of java API
Indeed. But apparently the java API classes can't be found.
And that has to do with your class path, yes.

ricjavaAuthor Commented:
expertmb - yes "ms" is a valid ISO language code in http://www.ics.uci.edu/pub/ietf/http/related/iso639.txt

zzynx - remember that day i run the Properties class and that can be found. If properties can be found then why not ResourceBundle. They are from java api.

I thought classpath is set if we import any java classes that are not part of Java API.

>>I thought classpath is set
the class path is never set automatically.
>>remember that day i run the Properties class and that can be found.
Did you also run it
- the same way
- in c:\myprogram ?

zzynx - i was able to run Properties class that day without having any CLASSPATH created as env var in my computer.

absolutely.....

How do you run it?

ricjavaAuthor Commented:

hope this time my problem won't be a tougher exam question for students :)

zzynxSoftware engineerCommented:
Try
        C:\myprogram\java -classpath . ResourceBundle

zzynxSoftware engineerCommented:
>>just run from C
>>C:\myprogram\java ResourceBundle

I hope you meant

        C:\myprogram\java ResourceBundleResource            // Your class is called ResourceBundleRESOURCE !!!!

Then try
        C:\myprogram\java -classpath . ResourceBundleResource

zzynxSoftware engineerCommented:
I think that's your problem

Don't start it as

        C:\myprogram\java ResourceBundle

but as

        C:\myprogram\java ResourceBundleResource

ricjavaAuthor Commented:
sorry.........i didn't start with

c:\myprogram\java ResourceBundle

but

c:\myprogram\java ResourceBundleResearch

zzynxSoftware engineerCommented:
Did you already try

        C:\myprogram\java -classpath . ResourceBundleResource

?

Thanks:)

zzynxSoftware engineerCommented:
Thanks for accepting.

You see, the first link wasn't that bad ;°)
I quote:

     7. To run a HelloWorld.class app, in the default package in C:\MyDir, use
           CD \MyDir
           java.exe -classpath . HelloWorld

Btw, next time make sure you accept the right comment (ResourceBundleResource instead of ResourceBunde)
