About the internationalization completion

The plugin offers auto-completion for the configuration internationalization. The Talend component configuration lets you setup translatable and user-friendly labels for your configuration using a property file. Auto-completion in possible for the configuration keys and default values in the property file.

For example, you can internationalize a simple configuration class for a basic authentication that you use in your component:

        @GridLayout.Row({ "url" }),
        @GridLayout.Row({ "username", "password" }),
public class BasicAuthConfig implements Serializable {

    private String url;

    private String username;

    private String password;

This configuration class contains three properties which you can attach a user-friendly label to.

For example, you can define a label like My server URL for the url option:

  1. Locate or create a file in the project resources and add the label to that file. The plugin automatically detects your configuration and provides you with key completion in the property file.

  2. Press Ctrl+Space to see the key suggestions.
