Subject Re: Putting all messages in messages.properties?
Date Tue, 04 Apr 2006 20:22:56 GMT
The client messages.properties file will only have messages used by the 
client.  In particular, it will have all messages whose ids start with 
"XJ", as well as a select list which are specified in splitmessages.java.

So you won't have the entire 71K properties file on the client side.
