first, i don't know where to put this file.
second, i don't know what to write in struts-config.xml to deploy this file.
third, i don't know what to do if i want to use chinese in that file.
what i did was wrote chinese directely into the file with the format of name=value pairs. and place this file in the WEB-INF/classes/callcenter/web directory. and i add <message-resources parameter="callcenter.web.ApplicationResources"/> to the struts-config.xml. when deployed to weblogic 7. nothing appeared. i saw a line in weblogic runing window:
[INFO]PropertyMessageResources - -Initializing, config='org.apache.struts.taglib.bean.LocalStrings' returnNull=true
I don't know what this sentence means. it's just cannot work. the page stops at the <bean:message title="index.title"/>. but i did write a name value pair in the file: index.title=*****, "*****" here is in chinese.
can anybody help me? really thanks!

thanks! if i use english in my case, all is ok. so my configuration and files are all ok. the only question left is how to deal with chinese. i saw a example shipped with struts 1.1 b2. it contains a and i looked into it. I saw no japanese code but all unicodes. i think that must be very boring to transfer japanese to unicode one by one. is there any tools?
