    998974
      Hi,

      We have a requirement that we need to have text area/text box on screen to accept multiple languages like (Spanish and russian) that means user can able to enter their text data either in any language like english,russian and spanish(It should be possible to enter the comments in russian and spanish languages). Is it possible to implement in java/j2ee?, If yes kindly provide us solution details. Any Help is highly appreciated.

          What exactly doesn't work? No matter the (spoken) language - its still only text data. The one thing you need to look out for is in no way specific to Java/JEE and that is that you employ proper character encoding and fonts to be able to display the language specific characters. If you don't know much or anything about character encoding, I suggest you research that. Start here:

          BTW: its a bit of a silly question, don't you agree? No - you can only create English applications using Java! What a world that would be.
