you should not use the underscore in package-names. See code-conventions of

"... package name is always written in all-lowercase ASCII letters ..."

Betreff: [opencms-dev] Underscores in Language Files


I encountered a problem during the deployment of my first module. The icon
subtitle in the Administration page is determined by a tag in a language
file. My package name is


the Backoffice class is called 


Now I just can't write 


in the language file because the underscores which are real underscores and
those who represent dots can no longer be distinguished. How do I tell
OpenCMS which is which?

I also can't name the file


due to the same problem. It is not obvious where the language suffix begins.

How do I work with underscores in package names??
