You can do it the dirty way:
private static MessageResources messages = MessageResources.getMessageResources("lae.resources.ApplicationResources");

the complex way:
private static MessageResources messages;
protected MessageResources getResources()
if (messages == null)
ActionMappings mappings;
mappings = (ActionMappings) pageContext.getAttribute(Action.MAPPINGS_KEY
ActionServlet servlet = mappings.getServlet();
messages = servlet.getResources();
return messages;
or perhaps there is a nicer way to get the resources without knowing the name of the resource file.
I agree. Here's the link:
