I tried adding

   errors.header=<font color="red">

to, and

   <html:errors property="error.login.password.required"/>
   <html:errors property="password"/>

to login.jsp.  I wasn't sure whether the property attribute referred to a
key in the message resources or to the name of a form element (I suspect the
latter), so I included both.  Both returned an empty string when I attempted
to submit the form without filling out the password form element.

Subject: Message resources

I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but after a day of trying to solve
this, I'm quite tired of beating my head against the wall.  For some reason
it seems that ActionServlet isn't able to load the message resources for my
application.  I have the following lines in my web.xml file:

	<!-- Irrelevant lines snipped -->

In the /WEB-INF/classes directory, I have a file named, containing the following lines:

   error.login.username.required=Username is required
   error.login.password.required=Password is required
   error.login.incorrect=Invalid username/password pair; please try again

If I include '<bean:message key="index.title"/>' in index.jsp and open it in
a web browser, I get a ServletException, "Missing message for key
index.title".  I added some debugging code to index.jsp;

      String name = ""; url = null;
      url = this.getClass().getClassLoader().getResource(name);
      out.println("<code>url</code> is null:" +
         (new Boolean(url == null)).toString() + "<br>");
   <logic:present name="org.apache.struts.action.MESSAGE"
      Application resources loaded.
   <logic:notPresent name="org.apache.struts.action.MESSAGE"
      Application resources not loaded.

which produces:

   url is null:true
   Application resources loaded.

The struts-example application functions properly, as do my ActionServlets
(though <html:errors/> always returns an empty string, even if my ActionForm
returns validation errors).  I am at a loss to explain this odd behavior,
and would appreciate any insight you could provide.
