Installation & Upgrade
EcoSys Version

EcoSys supports the ability to present its UI in the local language of your choice. During the upgrade process EcoSys will preserve the locale files located in ESFM_HOME directory so that the administrator can merge/update any changes to the newly distributed locale files.

First startup after an upgrade

During this startup EcoSys will,

  • Make a backup of the ESFM_HOME\locales directory by appending the current DateTime to the folder name.

  • Replace the en-us.properties in the ESFM_HOME\locales directory with a new file corresponding to the EcoSys being deployed.

  • Place a yellow banner at the top of the EcoSys web application warning users 'Locale backup(s) may need to be merged'.

    • This message will only be displayed for the first restart after an upgrade. Restarting the application server a second time will clear this message.

Managing locale files

  • If you have not modified the en-us.properties locale file and/or added any additional locale files.

    • Delete the ESFM_HOME\locale_<DateTime> backup directory and restart the application server.

  • If you have modified the en-us.properties locale file and/or have added another locale.

    • Merge any changes you made to the en-us.properties into the new file in ESFM_locales.

    • Update your locale files with any new or modified strings from the new build. See the EcoSys Release Notes for updated or added locale keys.

  • Restart your server after you have completed your changes.
