Subject Re: Resource Bundle Prototyping
Date Wed, 06 Aug 2003 15:44:38 GMT
The main move regarding resource bundles is to use the 
commons-resources package (which is still in the "sandbox").

There has been some discussion about commons-resources on the Commons 
Dev mailing list lately.  This post by Martin Cooper 
summarizes the current state of affairs, but note that there are 
messages before and after it in the thread if you want complete 

Your suggestion is on the Struts-specific side of things, but it 
might be worth monitoring that discussion (particularly about 
refining the abstractions) to help ensure that the general API 
doesn't make it difficult or impossible to get where you want to be.
