Hi Guys,

I am pretty new in struts and is making an application where I want to externalize my message resource property file in struts.
like my application property file is outside of my war file(in my C: drive), how can i configure my struts application to use the same.



Regards,
-Hemant.

hi Hemant Thard,

do you need it because you need to reload the properties files on each and every request?

hi debraj ,

Thanks for the reply.
no i want to keep my messaage resources property file outside of war file.
it will be helpful to me when i want to add new language to my application without restarting my server.

Just keep your project in development mode on each and every request your properties files will be reloaded automatically.

check out http://struts.apache.org/2.x/docs/devmode.html
put struts.i18n.reload = true in your struts.properties along with struts.devMode = true

thanks for the reply

but i dont want to reload my message file on each and every request.

here's what i am trying to do.

i have language drop down whose value comes from DB. when new language is to be added, an entry is made on that table. so i want to externalize my message resource prop file, so that i just have to keep my message resource file on that folder and my application will pick up that file. no need to restart your server.

I hope i am clear.
