Easiest way to provide multi-language support?

I want my app to support several languages (e.g: English, Indonesia, and Malaysia). Of course users are able to change the language within the app.

 

What is the easiest way to do this?

I think  ResourceBundle can be used for the purpose, but I'm still not sure how to change the language during run time.

The search box is your friend - remember someone else has probably asked the question before.

Ah I see. Thanks.

But I don't see Indonesia or Malaysia supported in Locale class.

How can we use them, then?

Re: Easiest way to provide multi-language support?

according to my own reply to a similar question (i used search):
id is the code for Indonesia.
Appname_id.rrc would be the language file.

as there is no constant in the locale class there may be no way to set indonesian as the device language programatically, but you can provide resources for it.
