Example

In first ResourceBundle class we have put color name
Listing 1: EncCode_gg.java

package javabeat.net;

import java.util.ListResourceBundle;

public class EncCode_gg extends ListResourceBundle
{
  	public Object[][] getContents()
{
   		 return contents;
  	}
  	Static final Object[][] contents =
{
  		{"color.blue", "Blue"},
  		{"count.green", "Green"},
  		{"count.white", "White"},
  	};
}

The another ResourceBundle contains color name in spanish language:

Listing 2: EncCode_bb.java

package javabeat.net;

import java.util.ListResourceBundle;

public class EncCode_bb extends ListResourceBundle
 {
  	public Object[][] getContents()
 {
    		return contents;
 	 }
  	static final Object[][] contents =
{
 	 	{"color.blue", "Azul"},
  		{"color.green", "Verde"},
 	 	{"color.white", "Blanco"},
  	};
}
