Message Files

A message file is essentially a property file. The file name dictates which locale(s) it applies to. The naming convention is as follows:

<prefix>msgs[_languageCode[_countryCode[_variantCode]]].properties

Do not provide more precision than necessary. By default, all message files are named as:

<prefix>msgs_en.properties (English)

or

<prefix>msgs.properties (language independent)

No support exists for prepend or append operations.

All entries must follow this syntax: category.number=message text
