Refresh Resource Bundle

  • Resource bundle can not be refreshed using ResourceBundle class. using following code do not clear the cache.
Class type = ResourceBundle.class;
Field cacheList = type.getDeclaredField("cacheList");
  • If you want to refresh resource bundle of your application you should need to use Resource bundle manager instead of Resource bundle class.
ResourceBundleManagerRT rt = (ResourceBundleManagerRT)ResourceBundleManagerRT.getResourceBundleManager();

Use external XML file for Resource Bundle

  • Create list resource bundle file for default and supported locale. And read label value from xml file.
  • This approach gives a facility to change label or message value, without compilation and redeployment of application.
  • To do this first crate a xml file containing key and value pair, so that you can use label according to their key.


  • This method also give an option to use single file for different application, which are used as a library.
  • Here you can write code to read xml file and assign key value pair to an object of resource bundle class.
public class MyResources extends ListResourceBundle {

    public MyResources() {
  private static final Object[][] contents =
    { { "", "" }, { "", "" }, { "", "" } };

    protected Object[][] getContents() {
        try {
            File file = new File("C:\\Users\\admin\\Desktop\\locale\\Resource.xml");
            DocumentBuilderFactory dbf = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
            DocumentBuilder db = dbf.newDocumentBuilder();
            Document doc = db.parse(file);
            NodeList nList = doc.getElementsByTagName("label");

            for (int temp = 0; temp < nList.getLength(); temp++) {

                Node nNode = nList.item(temp);
                if (nNode.getNodeType() == Node.ELEMENT_NODE) {

                    Element eElement = (Element)nNode;

                    contents[temp][0] = getTagValue("key", eElement);
                    contents[temp][1] = getTagValue("value", eElement);

        } catch (Exception e) {
        return contents;

    private static String getTagValue(String sTag, Element eElement) {
        NodeList nlList = eElement.getElementsByTagName(sTag).item(0).getChildNodes();
        Node nValue = (Node)nlList.item(0);

        return nValue.getNodeValue();

Call Jasper report using a link

In previous post jasper report is called with the help of java bean. Now we can use a link to call report as in previous method calling report from a .jsff page gives error.

To call report using link follow following steps: 

  • Add a go link to page which will call servlet and also pass parameters.
  • Add a command button to assign value to parameters.
  • Add value in destination like “/jasperservlet?deptno=#{bindings.DepartmentId1.inputValue}&reporttype=#{bindings.Filetype1.inputValue}”.
  • Here deptno and reporttype are parameters passed from url and will be used in servlet.
  • To get parameter value in servlet use following code.
Integer code = Integer.valueOf(request.getParameter("deptno"));
String reporttype = request.getParameter("reporttype");
