Is the com.mapinfo.dp.Attribute type "String" a Java string, and can it be used with UNICODE fonts in a rendition.
Is the com.mapinfo.dp.Attribute type "String" a Java string, and can it be used with UNICODE fonts in a rendition? Assuming that what need to be done is to store multiple columns with labeling info to do this, but just checking on how best to approach Internationalization...
Yes, the Attribute type String is a Java string and does support UNICODE. MapXtreme Java does allow for configuring which column will be used for labeling, so placing the localized data in multiple columns is certainly an option. There may also be a way to use our ability to allow the user to specify a layer as a SQL statement. Here the data could be joined with the localization information. This option would require some more work up front in defining the various localized layers, whereas the first option would be easier to switch at runtime.
