RbMan2 .. Open Source Resource Bundle Editing in Flex

=== Description ===

RbMan2 is designed to run in two different modes. It can run as a web based resource bundle editor or as an integrated resource editor and resource bundle API in your existing applications.

As a stand alone editor it can be used as a web based resource editing tool to create a central repository for geographically distributed translators. The resource bundles you create can then be exported for use in your applications as java properties files or utf-8 encoded resource bundles.

As an integrated editor it is ideal for managing resources in a clustered environment. i.e. when you have two or more web servers sharing the same bundles. It can happily run along side your existing apps with bundles being read from the database backend through RbMan API.

=== Installation ===

These installation notes describe how to install RbMan2.

If you run into any difficulty please email support[AT]bytespring.com

1a. Unzip the pre-compiled build into your webroot.

It's located in the install directory of the source package.
