Problem with ResourceBundle and Weblogic

I'm developping a website with Weblogic 8.1 and I'm having some problems with resourceBundle. The site has to be in Dutch and French.
I've created 3 property-files (, and The property-files are saved in the directory WEB-INF/classes.

When I run this, I get the following error

I've also tried:
ResourceBundle labels = ResourceBundle.getBundle("resources", currentLocale);

Can anyone help me??

Try changing the line :

To something like :

I think the basename is used by a ClassLoader to find the resource bundle property file. Specifying the full path confuses the ClassLoader and it won't find your files. Just specify the files and/or directories below where the classpath is defined - since "/belpic/WEB-INF/classes" should be on the classpath, all you need to define is "/resources".

Write once, run anywhere, because there's nowhere to hide! - /. A.C.
I agree. Here's the link:
