I've tried adding the properties file in the src folder and in the project
root. I'm trying to build the project using eclipse, which is what I use to
develop the project.

Is it also the case that the value of the message property of the
annotation is used as a key in the validationMessages file? that is, can I
use this:


and it will find the "cannot be empty" value in the following file: be empty

Thanks again for your help
