I'm trying to change the locale of my application , but nothing happens . it always stays at a default definition. I'm using JSF and Bean Validation and MessagesProperties of BeanValidation I know that does't need any configuration at faces-config.xml

@Named
@SessionScoped
public class UsuarioMB implements Serializable {

	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
	private String userCSS = "estilo.css";
&#9;private List<String> cssDisponivel;
&#9;private String tema;
&#9;private String linguaEscolhida="pt" ;
&#9;private Locale locale;

&#9;private int tabAtiva;

&#9;public void inicializar() {
&#9;&#9;cssDisponivel = new ArrayList<String>();
&#9;&#9;cssDisponivel.add("estilo.css");
&#9;&#9;cssDisponivel.add("estilo2.css");
&#9;}

&#9;public void alterarTema() {
&#9;&#9;System.out.println("alterado para: " + tema);
&#9;}

&#9;public String alterarEstilo() {
&#9;&#9;return null;
&#9;}

&#9;public String alterarIdioma() {
&#9;&#9;locale = new Locale(linguaEscolhida);
&#9;&#9;FacesContext instance = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
&#9;&#9;instance.getViewRoot().setLocale(locale);
&#9;&#9;return null;
&#9;}

&#9;public List<String> getCssDisponivel() {
&#9;&#9;return cssDisponivel;
&#9;}

&#9;public void setCssDisponivel(List<String> cssDisponivel) {
&#9;&#9;this.cssDisponivel = cssDisponivel;
&#9;}

&#9;public String getUserCSS() {
&#9;&#9;return userCSS;
&#9;}

&#9;public void setUserCSS(String userCSS) {
&#9;&#9;this.userCSS = userCSS;
&#9;}

&#9;public String getTema() {
&#9;&#9;if (tema == null) {
&#9;&#9;&#9;tema = "bluesky";
&#9;&#9;}

&#9;&#9;return tema;
&#9;}

&#9;public void setTema(String tema) {
&#9;&#9;this.tema = tema;
&#9;}

&#9;public String getLinguaEscolhida() {
&#9;&#9;return linguaEscolhida;
&#9;}

&#9;public void setLinguaEscolhida(String linguaEscolhida) {
&#9;&#9;this.linguaEscolhida = linguaEscolhida;
&#9;}

&#9;public Locale getLocale() {
&#9;&#9;if (locale == null) {
&#9;&#9;&#9;locale = new Locale(linguaEscolhida);
&#9;&#9;}

&#9;&#9;return locale;
&#9;}

&#9;public int getTabAtiva() {
&#9;&#9;return tabAtiva;
&#9;}

&#9;public void setTabAtiva(int tabAtiva) {
&#9;&#9;this.tabAtiva = tabAtiva;
&#9;}

&#9;public void onTabChange(TabChangeEvent event) {
&#9;&#9;TabView tabView = (TabView) event.getComponent();
&#9;&#9;setTabAtiva(tabView.getActiveIndex());
&#9;}

Open in new window



My faces config:

<message-bundle>br.com.confiabilidade.mensagens.Messages</message-bundle>

&#9;&#9;<resource-bundle>
&#9;&#9;&#9;<base-name>br.com.confiabilidade.mensagens.sistema</base-name>
&#9;&#9;&#9;<var>mensagens</var>
&#9;&#9;</resource-bundle>

&#9;&#9;<locale-config>
&#9;&#9;&#9;<default-locale>en</default-locale>
&#9;&#9;&#9;<supported-locale>pt</supported-locale>
&#9;&#9;&#9;<supported-locale>en</supported-locale>
&#9;&#9;</locale-config>
&#9;</application>

Open in new window



I've put at root view:

<f:view contentType="text/html; charset=UTF-8" encoding="UTF-8" locale="#{usuarioMB.locale}">

Whatever value you are setting in method, locale should work on that.
Is it working if you set
public void setLinguaEscolhida(String linguaEscolhida) {
            this.linguaEscolhida = "pt";
      }

?

No . take a look:

public void setLinguaEscolhida(String linguaEscolhida) {
            this.linguaEscolhida = "en";
      }

output on console:



      public Locale getLocale() {
            if (locale == null) {
                  locale = new Locale(linguaEscolhida);
                  System.out.println(locale.getDisplayName() +" --- "+ locale.getDisplayLanguage());
            }

            return locale;
      }

português --- português
português --- português
português --- português
português --- português
português --- português
português --- português
português --- português
português --- português


Here is the code  that change the locale

private String linguaEscolhida = "pt";

or

private String linguaEscolhida = "en";

In my view:

<p:selectOneMenu value="#{usuarioMB.linguaEscolhida}">  <----HERE
				<f:selectItem itemValue="pt"
					itemLabel="#{mensagens.internacionalizacaoPT}" />


				<f:selectItem itemValue="en"
					itemLabel="#{mensagens.internacionalizacaoEN}" />

			</p:selectOneMenu>

			<p:commandButton action="#{usuarioMB.alterarIdioma}" update="@form"
				value="#{mensagens.internacionalizacaoTrocar}"/>

Open in new window



and when i click at commandbutton  calls the metod:

public String alterarIdioma() {
            locale = new Locale(linguaEscolhida);
            FacesContext instance = FacesContext.getCurrentInstance();
            instance.getViewRoot().setLocale(locale);
            System.out.println(locale.getDisplayName() +" --- "+ locale.getDisplayLanguage());
            return null;
      }

That would must be working . Would't it?

ALso check you are importing correct package for Named and SessionScope annotation?

With sessionecope

import javax.enterprise.context.SessionScoped;

it Works . the locale change in sysout method alterarIdioma, but the labels does' t change.

very strange .
the faces-config :


      <application>

            <resource-bundle>
                  <base-name>br.com.confiabilidade.resources.sistema</base-name>
                  <var>msg</var>
            </resource-bundle>

            <locale-config>

                  <default-locale>pt_BR</default-locale>
                  <supported-locale>pt</supported-locale>
                  <supported-locale>en</supported-locale>
            </locale-config>
      </application>

      <factory>
            <exception-handler-factory>
                  br.com.confiabilidade.util.jsf.JsfExceptionHandlerFactory
            </exception-handler-factory>
      </factory>

</faces-config>
