I have a customized MessageResources class and corresponding factory class. If I want to use this customized class as my message resources class for the struts application , I can give an entry in struts-config.xml .(in the message resource element , I will set the factory attribute).
What�s the problem I am facing now is, I want to use fmt:message instead of bean:message in my application. If I am not using the customized class it will work. But I want to use this coustomized class instead of default message resource class.
Can anybody help me ?

fmt:message doesn't care about where your message resource is as long as you 'tell' it where it is in your app. inside you web.xml simply add:

I agree. Here's the link:
