In some version of Struts, the name attribute of the html:form tag is deprecated. I'd suggest you remove it.

I'm only guessing here since the exception is not very informative but maybe the messageresources file is not found. Tomcat would show better exception where it would read what the problem is.

In any case your config file looks like this
<message-resources parameter="/com.main.MessageResources.properties" null="false" />

whereas in one application I'm developing it looks like this
<message-resources parameter="MessageResources" />

so there are no leading "/" or "com.main" and the ".properties" is omitted also. My MessageResources.properties file is located in classes folder.

Hope this helps.

<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-html.tld" prefix="html" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-bean.tld" prefix="bean" %>

<html:html>
<head> <html:base/> </head>
<html:errors/>
<body>
(- tags-no ) This is custoemrformDetails2-jsp

<html:form action="submitCustomerForm2.do" method="POST">

<bean:message key= "prompt.customer.firstname"/>
<html:text property="firstName"/>

<bean:message key= "prompt.customer.lastname"/>

Merril Thanks a lot.
I fixed the Action mapping issue based on Struts-FAQs 13 you suggested.
But still uable to display the values of the keys

----------Bean:message is displaying(key names, not the values):

???en_US.prompt.customer.firstname??? ???en_US.prompt.customer.lastname???
???en_US.button.submitt???
???en_US.button.cancel???

----------in the properties file:
prompt.customer.firstname=First Namelabel
prompt.customer.lastname=Last Namelabel
button.submit= Submit ME
button.cancel= Cancel ME

----------Stuts-config.xml:
<message-resources parameter="com/main/MessageResources.properties" null="false" />

-------------- JSP
<html:form action="submitCustomerForm2.do" method="POST">

<bean:message key= "prompt.customer.firstname"/>
<html:text property="firstName"/>

<bean:message key= "prompt.customer.lastname"/>
<html:text property="lastName"/>

<html:submit>
<bean:message key= "button.submit" />
</html:submit>

<html:cancel>
<bean:message key= "button.cancel" />
</html:cancel>

</html:form>


Thanks,
Jay

It's your entry in the struts-config.xml file that's causing the problem. Omit the ".properties" from the parameter value, even though the file itself should have ".properties" extension. Then make sure that the MessageResources.properties file is in the WEB-INF/classes/com/main folder.

Merrill,
Thank you very much.
The application is working fine after I removed (.properteis) suffix in the struts-config.xml file.
