Trouble in displaying error message using html:errors tag

Hi All,

I am a newbie as far as struts is concerned.
I am using weblogic 8.1 and struts 1.1 .

My problem is that when i am returning actionerrors from my validate method but the html:errors tag is not able to display my error mesages. It displays the key name with question marks which i believe happens when the struts is not able to pick the resource bundle.
The string displayed by JSp is like this -> ???en_US.xyz???

In the validate method of my action form class this is how i am setting the
action error where ae is an instance of ActionErrors

ae.add("abc",new ActionError("xyz"))

In the JSP i am using <html:errors /> to display all the error messages

In the Struts-config file i have configured the resource file by adding this
<message-resources parameter="ErrorMsg" null="false"/>

and i have placed ErrorMsg.properties inside web-inf/classes

please send in ur inputs on why this could be happening

regards and thanks

Hi,

Have you defined


in your ErrMsg.properties file? Everything else seems to be right.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
