Trinidad Tools Design View

Trinidad Tools for Dreamweaver significantly enhances Dreamweaver's Design View by enabling visual tags for Trinidad to give you an accurate design-time representation of UI components, such as trees, data tables, calendars, navigation menus, buttons, images, and more.

In addition, Trinidad Tools supports locale-aware UI components in the Trinidad tag library, that display date, time, text and currency strings in the user's own language. For example, JSF EL expressions that evaluate to message bundle keys will be rendered as the actual localized text values found in your message bundles at design time.

Therefore, simply by changing the locale of your f:view tag, you can preview what end users in other countries will see when they view your pages. Trinidad components will instantly update their design-time appearance to display dates, times and currencies in the appropriate format for different locales. This gives you unprecedented support for internationalization (I18N) of JSF pages.
