Struts validation error message not appearing

To all:
Sytem: JBoss-3.2.4, Tomcat-5.0.26, WindowsXP
I set up a Struts validation and I get the pop-up window but the error message is blank. I can tell the validation is working since the pop-up window will not appear if I enter a correct value. My guess is that I did not set the xml files correctly. However, I don't see what is wrong.
Can anybody help me?


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE form-validation PUBLIC "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Commons Validator Rules Configuration 1.0//EN" "">
<form-validation >

<form name="bdprWkpkgReqDtoActionForm">
<field property="wireCenter" depends="required,mask">
<arg0 key="inputForm.wireCenter"/>
<arg1 key="inputForm.wireCenter"/>

part of struts-config.xml after action-mapping
<message-resources parameter="resources.application" />
<plug-in className="org.apache.struts.validator.ValidatorPlugIn">
<set-property property="pathnames" value="/WEB-INF/validator-rules.xml,/WEB-INF/validation.xml" />

/******/ file which I put under /WEB-INF/classes/resources

errors.required={0} is required.
errors.mask={0} must be a 6-digit number.
