Handler unsupported language

by  tripm »  2013/08/21 08:00

Hi all,
I had a site which was using multiple language. And now, I want to add new language (In my case is: "fr_MA") But I didn't see this language in section "Manage Languages".
How can I extend the list of available languages?
Best regards,

there already was a forum discussion about that here with some further links: http://www.jahia.com/home/download/forum/jahia-user/jahia-65/adding-a-custom-locale.html

For instance I tested to create a JAR with a class file like this:

package org.jahia.test.services.i18n;

import java.util.Currency;
import java.util.Locale;
import java.util.spi.CurrencyNameProvider;

public class MyCustomLocales extends CurrencyNameProvider {
    final static Locale[] locales = new Locale[]{new Locale("fr", "MA")};

    public Locale[] getAvailableLocales() {
        return locales;
    public String getSymbol(String currencyCode, Locale locale) {
        if (currencyCode == null || locale == null)
            throw new NullPointerException();
          if (currencyCode.length() != 3)
            throw new IllegalArgumentException("currency code length not 3");
          for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++)
            if (!Character.isUpperCase(currencyCode.charAt(i)))
              throw new IllegalArgumentException("bad currency code");
          if (!locale.equals(locales[0]))
            throw new IllegalArgumentException("unsupported locale");
          if (currencyCode.equals("MAD"))
            return "MAD";
            return null;

and then I added a META-INF\services\java.util.spi.CurrencyNameProvider file to the JAR listing my implementation in a line of that file and deployed the created JAR to <JDK-HOME>\jre\lib\ext . After restarting the Jahia server, the French (Morocco) got listed as available language.
