Right now, all my success messages are in my class, stored as String objects. Are there any better way of handling this? Could someone show me please a better sample? Thanks!

If i understand your question right, what you are looking for is Resource Bundles. Here are a few links for the same:

Resource Bundle Javadoc

Struts Message Resources

Using Resource Bundle in Struts

Section "Generating Localized Text" at Internationalization of messages

Resource bundle help you in moving your messages from your java file to *.properties file. These properties files are known as resource bundles and contain key-value pairs of messages that you use in your application.
