internationalization in jsp

am working on a JSP which has static content hardcoded into it
I wanna replace that static content,so i have kept the messages into the properties file.
eg:in the properties file
equipments.text.compatible_equipment= compatible equipments
and now I have crfeated an Interface in Java and declared constanstants equating to these keys
public static final String EQUIPMENT_COMPATIBLE="equipments.text.compatible_equipment";

now in the jsp page;
I'm importing the interface

the existing page contains:

<b>Compatible equipments</b>

I want to have something like this

<b><bean:message key="<%=interfacename.EQUIPMENT_COMPATIBLE%>" /></b>

but my problem is
even after importing struts-bean
the tag is not working
i have placed the properties file and the interface in the required place acc to my application

so can i use <c ut> tag :if so how can it be implemented in the given scenario

or can i use <fmt:message tag>
and does this work with the resource bundles
which i am using with the struts-bean tld in my other pages

have more doubt..if i'm using struts framework,then can i use the JSTL tag library for the internationalization,i mean if i have defines all the messages in a property file of my application
and if for only one page i wanna use the internationaliza the static content
is this possible

thanks in advance

We're pleased to have you here with us on the Ranch, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Yes, you can do i18n with JSTL, Struts, Whatever.
you only need read documentation.
