G Schema Reference: Message Catalog msgcat.dtd

This appendix provides a reference to elements of the msgcat.dtd schema, the schema behind XML you use to configure message catalog elements for log messages you can localize.

G.1 Overview of the Message Catalog Elements

Oracle CEP provides a number of message catalog elements that you use to define log messages that you can localize.

G.1.1 Element Hierarchy

The top-level Oracle CEP message catalog elements are organized into the following hierarchies, depending on message catalog type:

Example G-1 Log Message Catalog Hierarchy

message_catalog
    log_message
        messagebody
        messagedetail
        cause
        action

Example G-2 Simple Text Catalog Hierarchy

message_catalog
    message
        messagebody

G.1.2 Examples

This section provides the following message catalog examples:

Example G-3 Log Message Catalog

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE message_catalog PUBLIC "weblogic-message-catalog-dtd" 
"http://www.bea.com/servers/wls90/dtd/msgcat.dtd">

  • l10n_packagemycatLogLocalizerDetail.properties

Syntax: standard Java package syntax.

Example: l10n_package="programs.utils"

Default: weblogic.i18n

String

No.

<[prefix-]id>

Where prefix is this attribute and id is the six-digit message ID associated with a specific message.

For example, if prefix is "XYZ", then message 987654 would be shown in a log entry as <XYZ-987654>. If prefix is not defined, then the log entry would be <987654>.

Syntax: any String (should be limited to five characters).

Example: prefix="CEP"

Attribute Description Data Type Required?

messageid

Unique identifier for this log message in alpha-numeric string format. Uniqueness is required only within the context of this catalog.

String

Yes.

datelastchanged

Date/time stamp used for managing modifications to this message. The date is supplied by utilities that run on the catalogs.

Use: The date is supplied by utilities that run on the catalogs.

Syntax: Long.toString(new Date().getTime());

String

No.

method

Method signature for formatting this message.

The syntax is a standard Java method signature, less return type, qualifiers, semicolon, and extensions. The return type is always String. Argument types can be any Java primitive or class. Classes must be fully qualified if not in java.lang. Classes must also conform to java.text.MessageFormat conventions. In general, class arguments should have a useful toString() method, and the corresponding MessageFormat placeholders must be strings; they must be of the form {n}. Argument names can be any valid name. There can be no more than 10 arguments.

For each argument there must be at least one corresponding placeholder in the messagebody element. Placeholders are of the form {n}, {n,number} or {n,date}.

Example: method="getNoAuthorization(String filename, java.util.Date creDate)"

This example would result in a method in the TextFormatter class as follows:

public String getNoAuthorization(String filename, java.util.Date creDate)

String

No.

retired

Indicates whether message is retired. A retired message is one that was used in a previous release but is now obsolete and not used in the current version. Retired messages are not represented in any generated classes or resource bundles.

String

No.


G.4.3 Example

The following example shows how to use the message element in log message catalog file:

<?xml version="1.0"?> 
<!DOCTYPE message_catalog PUBLIC "weblogic-message-catalog-dtd"
    "http://www.bea.com/servers/wls90/dtd/msgcat.dtd"> 
<message_catalog>
  l10n_package="programs.utils"
  i18n_package="programs.utils"
  subsystem="MYUTIL"
  version="1.0">
  <message messageid="FileMenuTitle">
    <messagebody>
      File
    </messagebody>
  </message>
</message_catalog>

G.5 messagebody

Use this element to define a short description for this message.

The messagebody element can contain a 0 to 10 placeholder as {n}, to be replaced by the appropriate argument when the log message is localized.

The message body must include placeholders for all arguments listed in the corresponding method attribute, unless the last argument is throwable or a subclass.

Be careful when using single quotes, because these are specially parsed by java.text.MessageFormat. If it is appropriate to quote a message argument, use double quotes (Section G.5.3, "Example" shows). If a message has one or more placeholders, in order for a single quote to appear correctly (for example, as an apostrophe), it must be followed by a second single quote.

Syntax: a String
