The concept to support multiple languages in an XPages based app is great and simple but lacks an easy way to maintain the file resources which hold the language settings. You need to either use Domino Designer or a fairly complex agent to transfer the language information from a normal notes document to the file resource. If there were an easier way to have the language information in the front-end but still leverage the eclipse features for handling the file resources, XPages would be more powerful.

Elguji's IQJam allows for language file manipulations in the Notes client. When the language document is saved the properties file that XPages need to render the labels is generated.

Bruce - Doesn't surprise me. It seems like a fairly sensible feature. My goal is simply to make such code easier for others to add, not necessarily to do that which has never been done before (although that might be fun as well).
