I18N Tutor

Several years back I developed a small desktop application in Swing which helps the user (who is a Java developer himself) to understand Internationalization in Java. I called it a 'Practical' tutor. Unlike usual text based tutorials, being a Java application itself, this allows the developer to read as well as try out the examples side-by-side. I passed it on to many of my friends/colleagues and they all liked it.

The formatting was explained for Number, Decimal formats with pattern, Currency format and percentage. Along with providing input numbers, the developer could also change the locale and see how that changes the output of the formatters.

Today, I am happy to have ported it to a web page running on Google App Engine. Do try it out and pass on the link if you like the same:
