Tag message

Render an internationalized message string to the response.

Retrieves an internationalized message for the specified locale, using the specified message key, and write it to the output stream. Up to five parametric replacements (such as "{0}") may be specified.

The message key may be specified directly, using the key attribute, or indirectly, using the name and property attributes to obtain it from a bean.

JSTL: The equivalent JSTL tag is <fmt:message>. For example,
<fmt:message key="my.msg.key"> <fmt:param value="replacement text"/> </fmt:message>
