Spring provides many ways to change locale, this documentation will describe how to change it via an URL query string parameter and how to persist it with a cookie.

General Configuration

Locale cookie persistance

Enabling locale change persistance via a cookie is done by defining the CookieLocaleResolver bean and optionally changing it's defaults:

CookieLocaleResolver configuration
<bean id="localeResolver" class="org.springframework.web.servlet.i18n.CookieLocaleResolver">
  <property name="cookieName" value="lang"/>

Here we changed the cookiename to be lang instead. Now you can set a cookie called lang to be any locale your IDP supports, e.g. en_GB . This can be done via Javascript e.g. or use the LocaleChangeInterceptor below.

URL query string based locale changing

To change the locale via an URL query string parameter you have to enable it via an interceptor:

LocaleChangeInterceptor configuration
  <bean id="localeChangeInterceptor" class="org.springframework.web.servlet.i18n.LocaleChangeInterceptor">
    <property name="paramName" value="lang"/>

Here we enabled changing the locale based on the URL query string parameter lang. This will be persisted to the cookie, if you configured it above.
