        Description

        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version "1.6.0_10-ea"
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_10-ea-b12)
        Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.0-b11, mixed mode, sharing)

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

        EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
        Windows L&F

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        The German translation of the JFileChooser is wrong.

        The original Microsoft Windows File Open Dialog on a German Windows (DE_de) says "Details" where the English one (EN_us) says "Details". This is quite common, since "Details" is a well-known often used word in Germany.

        The Swing JFileChooser on the same German Windows says "Einzelheiten" instead of "Details". That is pretty strange. Certainly the word "Details" CAN be translated by "Einzelheiten", but in this particular place it is totally wrong due to two reasons:

        (a) No German native speaker would says "Einzelheiten" but will always say "Details" when talking about the "Details" View of the file choser.

        (b) Virtually everybody would expect the JFileChooser using the exactly same words than the Windows File Open Dialog.

        This should be fixed soon to stop people wondering about Swing reading so strange on German PCs.

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Start \demo\jfc\FileChooserDemo contained in the JDK, open a file chooser on a German Windows (DE_de) using Windows L&F

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        "Details" should be "Details"
        ACTUAL -
        "Details" is "Einzelheiten"

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

          The properties files to be updated are j2se/src/share/classes/com/sun/java/swing/plaf/windows/resources/windows.properties and j2se/src/share/classes/com/sun/swing/internal/plaf/metal/resources/metal.properties. The values should be updated through ULA DB. Attached is the ULA file containing all the messages to be updated. Those messages can be updated through http://tula.red.iplanet.com/ula/ula.cgi in ula_j2se6ru, or they can be updated in ula file and then imported to ula db ula_j2se6ur.

          Responsible engineer only needs to upadate the ULA DB, I'll do the integration work.

          I'll leave the judgement on the translation itself to responsible engineer, who knows German.

          6u10 has passed beta. So far, the target release is set to 6u11.

          The engineering risk is very low. There is only resource file change.
