I have the file under WEB-INF/classes folder and the faces-config.xml looks like this

Al accessing the value in an output text entry is

But when I access the xhtml, the value is blank. Am I missing anything here?

Hi Mary.

You're a little confused as you say you want to use a resource bundle so you must use a <resource-bundle>, so if you have a properties file named you must put it in a package for example com.testpackage, and you can configure the resource bundle in the faces-config so,

And by doing this, you can use the resource (resource is the name that you give to resource-bundle using the <var> tag) as you want:
