      Description







      In Java 2 distribution for Solaris, Japanese localization files are archived
      in the same jar files as the base components. This architecture
      does not allow other localizations.

      The problem is:
        - Localization other than Japanese can not be done unless the base package
          contents are altered. Japanese L10n cannot be updated (for additional
          translation or bug fixes or whatever the reason is) unless the base
          package contents are altered.

      Java L10n on Solaris is completely blocked unless there is a resolution
      for this problem.

      ---------------------------------------
      Here is a list of Japanese L10N files.

      *******************************
      I confirmed with Japan that that this poses no serious problem for them for Kestrel 1.3 on Oct 04. I also reviewed the situation with Kazem the RE. We decided to change the status to RFE to address with Merlin, when I hope to alter the L10n structure any way.
