Description Petr Kremensky 2013-10-21 04:33:57 EDT
Description of problem:
We still have problem with installer once we miss some translated texts. There are three cases for missing property:
 - installer will show property's id
 - installer won't show any text
 - installer will stuck
We should force installer to use English text once translation is not available to avoid these situations.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 EAP 6.2.0.ER6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
 1. Run gui installation, use Deutsch. Skip into post-install configuration screen using default values.
 2. On post-install screen select to install Password-Vault.
 3. Enter "test" string into Iterationszählung input text field and press Next (Weiter) button.

Actual results:
 - installer will stuck

Expected results:
 - Error dialog is thrown with English string

Additional info:
 - see BZ1007833 for installer translations status
 - we did something similar for logging see JBPAPP6-820
Comment 1 Francisco Canas 2013-10-22 10:04:39 EDT
The hanging issue described above was actually caused by a separate bug in izpack. It's fix will be present in the next ER.

Additionally, I've now modified izpack to use a 'fallback' langpack when a string can't be found in the user-selected langpack. For the installer the fallback will be english.

Verified on EAP 6.2.0.ER7 installer.

Installer will now use English when translated string is missing.

Greate job!
