Class Message

java.lang.Object
  extended by com.atlassian.confluence.util.i18n.Message

public final class Message
extends Object

A user interface message consisting of a message key with optional arguments.

Typically, messages will be presented to the user by looking up their value in a properties file (or "bundle"), and applying MessageFormat to the value with any optional arguments. However, this class does not stipulate how the values held by this object might be used.

This class is immutable and thread-safe.
