Class HttpAcceptLanguage

  extended by oracle.i18n.servlet.localesource.LocaleSource
      extended by oracle.i18n.servlet.localesource.HttpAcceptLanguage

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class HttpAcceptLanguage
extends LocaleSource

The HttpAcceptLanguage class is a locale source class that carries the language preference of the web client.

On each request, the language preferences of the web client are conveyed by the Accept-Language item in the HTTP header. The language preference can be composed of multiple locales. For example, when the client sets the language preferences to French, English, German, and Japanese in this order, the Accept-Language value would be as follows:

   Accept-Language: en;q=0.9, fr;q=1.0, de, ja

Considering the locales supported by the application, the HttpAcceptLanguage object is instantiated with this value to determine the current user locale. In the preceding example, if the supported locales are en and ja, the user locale is determined to be en, since fr and de are not supported by the application and en has precedence over ja. Default Caching : This locale source is not cached in the session by default
