I have installed Apache Tomcat 6 as a Service in a Windows XP computer (French)
My problem is that Tomcat itself and all webapps (Sonar and Hudson) now show french messages.
I want English messages of course so I went to the "Regional Settings" window in Control panel and changed everything to English (US)
Tomcat however is still in French. Nothing changed at all.
I suspect that because it runs as a service it does not pick the settings from control panel.
So is there any way to trick the Tomcat JVM so that it uses English instead of French?
I have sys admin access to the machine (XP PRO French)
You need to set
java -Duser.language=en -Duser.region=CA
in your Tomcat startup (probably
catalina.bat). Check this link for more info, and for references to the sets of valid ISO codes for the above.
