Example

The following example shows the usage of java.util.ResourceBundle.containsKey() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.util.Locale;
import java.util.ResourceBundle;

public class ResourceBundleDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // create a new ResourceBundle with specified locale
      ResourceBundle bundle =
              ResourceBundle.getBundle("hello", Locale.US);

      // print the text assigned to key "hello"
      System.out.println("" + bundle.getString("hello"));

      // check if the bundle contains "bye" key
      System.out.println("" + bundle.containsKey("bye"));

      // check if the bundle contains "hello" key
      System.out.println("" + bundle.containsKey("hello"));

   }
}

Assuming we have a resource file hello_en_US.properties available in your CLASSPATH, with the following content. This file will be used as an input for our example program:

hello=Hello World!

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Hello World!
false
true
