[l20n] Move l20n_js context to app singleton


(Core :: Internationalization, defect)

Not set





(Reporter: zbraniecki, Assigned: zbraniecki)



As discussed with Taras and Pike, we want to move the l20n_js context to a per-app singleton.

The workflow:

1) we load XUL file
2) we check if we already have this document in context's document[] array. If we do, we just reuse it, if not
3) at each <?localize?> PI we check if we have this j20n file in context's cache[] array. If we don't we add it there:
cache['chrome://url/file.j20n'] = {list of entities}
3) then we generate document's entry inside the context:

document['chrome://url/document.xul'] = {}

and we copy (or somehow reference) the objects from cache that are used by the document into the document[] = {} object.

We need to figure out the way to do that without affecting perf.

I will need some guidance as in where to put the global l20n_js singleton into our code that it works as expected and is available to content sink and XMLDocument.

Seven years later, we're making another attempt to refactor our l10n layer.

The new tracking bug is bug 1365426 and I'll mark the previous effort as "INCOMPLETE".
