Internationalization in the Model

I have a Struts question about i18n that I have not yet seen discussed: how to properly handle internationalization in the model? I can get the view to work (considering switching to Velocity with VelStruts).

When my app gets data from the data store (NOT a SQL database), it is passing data back to the view as caption/data pairs. Right now, the captions are hard-coded in my model Java code. I have to figure out how to access the correct resource bundle in the model.

Should I be passing the Locale object in from the Action?

Thanks in advance.

see the internationalization in the model shoudl be handled by urself........and its better to pass the locale object from the action clss to ur model

It all depends on the way in which u can distribute in MVC more way is after getting data from the model , u can use the locale in action class itself to access the resource bundle and do something ....but i dont feel like its better to pass locale to the model
