Help about JWNL1.2

  • Anonymous - 2003-01-03

    Hi, I've got JDK 1.4, WordNet 1.7, JWNL 1.2 installed, but when I tried to run, exception about NUMBER_OF_VERB_FRAMES occurred.

    I tried to fix the bug myself by extracting property files and adding <!DOCTYPE> in xml files, but some other exceptions occurred in SAXParser.

    Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem in JWNL1.2? Thank you very much!

      I have the same problem with JWNL 1.2!
      As I understand, it occures while processing property file, not after this. And I'm also can't fix this problem...

      Hello, the problem occurs when you're using a locale different from "en".

      JWNL searches for

      To fix this, you can extract those files, put them in the same dir of Examples.class, and rename them according to your locale.

      Another fix is to change yout locale to english, putting the line


      before initializing JWNL.

      This was actually a bug in JWNL.initialize(). I have fixed it and re-uploaded the JWNL1.2 files. You will now be able to use JWNL without extracting the resource files or changing your default locale.

      This bug still seems to be present in, but not in the jar file I think.
