Hey Friends ,

In my team when i joined the struts-config had already been written , I am able to understand each and every element what it has been used for , However , the attribute in <message-resources> element which states null="false". I dont know why this attrib has been written and what it does..

Can someone shred some light on this please ?

Thanks in Advance
Yogendra Joshi.

A good source to go to for questions about the struts-config file is the DTD itself:

http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/dtds/struts-config_1_2.dtd

It's very well commented and will tell you about each element and attribute. Here's what it says about the null attribute in <message-resources>:

Set to "true" if you want our message resources to return a null string for unknown message keys, or "false" to return a message with the bad key value.



This means that null="true" causes a <bean:message> tag with a bad key to show nothing on the page. A null="false" entry causes a bad key to show as ??bad.key??.
