    Messages with arguments {0}, {1}, etc

    Ben Moore Newbie


      I have a message.properties key like this:

      foo=Last Login {0}

      I want to replace {0} at runtime with a custom value and insert value into a database. I don't want to display it to the user, so FacesMessages isn't the way to do it.

      How can I use Message or Messages with EL expressions in Java (not JSF or Facelets code)? I know Messages.getInstance, but this just gets name/value pairs of Strings. It doesn't allow me to replace {0}, {1}, etc.

      Thanks !!
