Contant UI messages in .NET

Hi

I have some standard UI messages like Error or Info. All are sent from the .Net Web Api service to UI angularjs.

There may be around 5-10 messages for now. This may increase in future.

1> Should I maintain them in the respective Business Class as constants.
2> keep them in Web.Config of the Web api
3> Or Global.asax of the Web api

What is the best practice. If you have any examples i.e helpful also. considering or performance, code maintenance and resusability. There is no database here.

Thanks in Advance

As I understand these messages are intended for users (customers). In this case I wouldn't maintain these messages hard-coded in business classes. You may need to change them, or you may need to translate them (which is quite common). In this case config file is better, I'd say.

Also check this MS forum: Where to keep an application constant?

Or this one: ASP.NET MVC - Using Resource Files to Manage String Constants

Eventually it depends on your specific needs.
