Morning task: try to figure out how i18n works.

Setting a text variable in a .properties file and referencing it in the view is working.

I.e., if the file is called, and its path in the plugin dir is


it should be referenced in the atlassian-plugin.xml with a line like this one:

<resource type="i18n" name="i18n" location="com.atlassian.jira.plugin.portlets.

Now, I have to understand which variables or properties are not explicitely being assigned by the user.

Update: I think those values are being set in another file; the problem is that I have only the jar file and I'm not able to see the source code of it. As a developer, trying to evaluate a product like jira without being able to see its code, is really a tough task.

In the afternoon I switched to a simplier task. I'm writing a paper about available Jira plugins for agile developers.
