Subject RE: BeanMessage Tag proposal
Date Mon, 19 Mar 2001 09:40:38 GMT
I would also like a similar change but would prefer it if the 'argX'
variables also worked with the defined bean. 

For example it would be nice if I could replace something like this:

<bean:message key="foo.bar" arg0="<%= aBean.getArg0()%>"/>

with this:

<bean:message key="foo.bar" name="aBean" arg0="arg0"/>

If the name attribute is not present the tag would still work as it
currently does.
