Subject RE: Using a key as var-value in validator
Date Wed, 01 Dec 2004 17:58:44 GMT

If you have defined resource bundle in struts config & are able to
access key from jsp then no additional step/configuration is required to
access them in validation file. The arg/msg lookup resource bundle
defined for the application and then pick up value

 There is glitch though the resource key's specified in the "msg" tag as
well as the validator's "msg" attribute are found regardless of their
bundle. The field arg tag however does not behave the same way, even
when the bundle attribute is specified (it seems that the bundle
attribute is ignored).

Subject: Using a key as var-value in validator

Dear all,

I'm using Struts 1.2.4 with Validator 1.1.3 for my application. I need
to access the Date Format stirng across the application at many

Instead of hard-coding format string everywhere I would like to use a
key from the Resource Bundle for the purpose. I can access the key
from all of my Java, Jsp code, but how do I access it the
validation.xml file?

Please share your views on this.

Thanks and regards,
Kinjal Sonpal
