am working on a JSP which has static content hardcoded into it
I wanna replace that static content,so i have kept the messages into the properties file.
eg:in the properties file
equipments.text.compatible_equipment= compatible equipments
and now I have crfeated an Interface in Java and declared constanstants equating to these keys
public static final String EQUIPMENT_COMPATIBLE="equipments.text.compatible_equipment";

now in the jsp page;
I'm importing the interface

the existing page contains:

<b>Compatible equipments</b>

I want to have something like this

<b><bean:message key="<%=interfacename.EQUIPMENT_COMPATIBLE%>" /></b>

but my problem is
even after importing struts-bean
the tag is not working
i have placed the properties file and the interface in the required place acc to my application

so can i use <c ut> tag :if so how can it be implemented in the given scenario

or can i use <fmt:message tag>
and does this work with the resource bundles
which i am using with the struts-bean tld in my other pages

have more doubt..if i'm using struts framework,then can i use the JSTL tag library for the internationalization,i mean if i have defines all the messages in a property file of my application
and if for only one page i wanna use the internationaliza the static content
is this possible

thanks in advance

We're pleased to have you here with us on the Ranch, but there are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Yes, you can do i18n with JSTL, Struts, Whatever.
you only need read documentation.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
