A resource bundle is essentially one or more Java "properties" files. ResourceBundle objects contain locale-specific objects. You use ResourceBundle objects to isolate locale-sensitive data, such as translatable text. In the sample program the ResourceBundle is backed by the properties files that contain the message text we want to display.
