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?

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

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.

>>remember that day i run the Properties class and that can be found.

I hope you meant

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

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

I think that's your problem

Don't start it as

        C:\myprogram\java ResourceBundle

but as

        C:\myprogram\java ResourceBundleResource

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)
