Change live application language/resource in Oracle ADF, Change XML Resource file at runtime

Hello All

I have posted about using external XML file as List resource bundle earlier , the aim of resource file is to read application static text from some source so that we can change that without compiling and redeploying application

Next requirement is to change application language , sometimes we need support multiple langauge in ADF application and it requires change in all static text so for this I am going to use separate XML resource file for different language and in this post I'll show that how to update resource file in a live running application

Changing af:convertNumber Format according to Locale- Oracle ADF

Simple post with very simple application-
we can covert a Numeric field format according to standard locale in ADF Faces.
when we have a numeric field on page there is a converter inside it, called af:convertNumber is extension of the standard JSF javax.faces.convert.NumberConverter.

 user can change it for Integer digits , fraction digits etc. but here i am talking about format of Number(Amount), to do this follow these steps.
  • Change GroupingUsed to true, by default it is true
  • Now set Locale, you can do this using managed bean or simply write it here
  • Managed Bean code to create Locale-  private Locale format=Locale.ENGLISH;
  • Now see various formats of Amount using Locale-

Using en-US-
 Using fr-
 Using hi-IN-for Hindi fonts
 Using de-DE -

so this is the thing how you can change formatting , this can also be done by managed bean.

  • Create a variable of type Locale and its getter -setter
  • Use it in Locale field of af:convertNumber  

  •     public void chinaButton(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
        public void frenchButton(ActionEvent actionEvent) {
        public void italianButton(ActionEvent actionEvent) {

  • You can also set Max and Min fraction digits in af:convertNumber
