Questions About Resource Bundles

I'm very new to Struts,as well as converting a Java MVC structured app into the Struts framework. And,in doing so, I am trying to convert a constants properties file into a messageResourceBundle file. My question is...

How do I access the attributes in the resource file from a class file? Or am I just down right off the mark, and cannot use the resource file that way?

It works when displaying a message from the resource file in a JSP page, but I can't figure out how to do it in a class file.

I appreciate any help.

U can use the java.util.ResourceBundle will do the job for u ........but ofcourse if u want to access the resourcebundles of the struts has a class named MessageResources which internally does the same job as java.util.ResourceBundle
