Basically, for each command's arguments and options there is an i18n  
message to get the value of its description or token.  This is based  
on the name of the field (or method) which the annotation is applied to.

So if you have:

     @Option(name="-g", aliases={"--groupId"}, argumentRequired=true,  
     private String groupId;

Then the "description" of the --groupId option would be configured by  
this message:

     command.option.groupId=This is the description of groupId

And options that take arguments or regular arguments have a token too,  
so in the above case this configures that:


This is used to generate what users see when they use --help on the  
given command based on their locale.

Well you need to be sure to follow the convention, for example there  
is no ".description" or ".tag" suffixes for these things ;-)

Ping me back if you still have questions.
