The webtop is a JavaServer Pages (JSP) technology web application. The standard webtop can be customized, or you can develop your own using the SGD web services.

Setting the Language for the Webtop

By default, the SGD web server Welcome Page at http://server.example.com, where server.example.com is the name of an SGD server, is displayed in English.

To change the default language of the SGD web server Welcome Page, amend the symbolic link /opt/tarantella/webserver/apache/apache-version/htdocs/index.html, so that it links to another index page in this directory. For example, to make the default Welcome Page display in Japanese, link to the index_ja.html page.

When users log in using a browser at the http://server.example.com/sgd URL, where server.example.com is the name of an SGD server, the default language used for messages displayed by the login dialog and the webtop is controlled by the defaultlanguage parameter setting in the following file: /opt/tarantella/webserver/tomcat/tomcat-version/webapps/sgd/WEB-INF/web.xml

To change the default language, edit this file and replace the parameter value en with the language identifier for one of the following supported languages:

Simplified Chinese
Traditional Chinese

Save changes to the web.xml file and restart the SGD web server.

The default language is also controlled by the Preferred Language in the user’s client profile. Whenever the SGD Client is started from the command line, for example when the SGD Client is in Integrated mode, the language specified in the profile is used for messages displayed by the SGD Client, the login dialog, and the webtop. SGD Administrators can set the default language by editing the profiles in their organizational hierarchy. See also Client Profile Settings.

Note - To be able to display text for a locale, users must also have appropriate fonts installed on their client device.

Overriding the Default Language for the Webtop

Individual users can override the default language for the webtop in the following ways:

Note - When you override the default language, the login URL specified in the user’s client profile does not need to be changed. This is usually http://server.example.com/sgd, where server.example.com is the name of an SGD server.
