When you chose the option Generate message files in adadmin, it invokes Message Dictionary Generator program (FNDMDGEN) and generates language.msb files in Product_top/mesg directory.
FNDMDGEN apps/appspword 0 Y language application_short_name DB_TO_RUNTIME
$ FNDMDGEN apps/apps 0 Y US PER DB_TO_RUNTIME
where Language=US and Application Short Name=PER
The FNDMDGEN program will generate a message file named Language.msb in place it in the custom applications basepath mesg directory.
For custom programs, Message Dictionary lets you catalog messages for display from your application without hard coding them into your forms and programs.
Using Message Dictionary, you can:
- Define standard messages you can use in all your applications
- Provide a consistent look and feel for messages within and across all your applications
- Define flexible messages that can include context–sensitive variable text
- Change or translate the text of your messages without regenerating or recompiling your application code.
