IBM's alphaWorks has updated the Resource Bundle Inspector For Java, a tool that "enables initial verification and inspection of translated messages in resource bundles before product testing is done. These translated messages have come from different geographical translation centers. This tool helps testers to speed up the verification of messages before integrating them into any product. Bugs found in translated messages can be detected at early stage of product testing cycle; this helps in increasing the testing cycle efficiency." This release adds support for 16 more languages and 39 more countries.

The Apache Project has released MyFaces 1.1.0, an open source implementation of Java Server Faces that tries to avoid the use of servlet sessions or cookies for saving the client state. This release is compatible with the JSF 1.1 specification.
