I'd like to implement my own display of ActionErrors in a JSP, rather than use the <html:errors> tag. My question is: How to I access the ActionErrors from a JSP under Struts 1.0 (yeah, I know it's ancient, but I'm supporting a legacy app).

Grab them from the request (session?) the same way the tag does; using constants defined here.

If you need to refer to the source it's available via SVN here.

Since I posted this, I realized the simpler way to do what I need is to specif a bundle attribute on the <html:errors> tag. The problem's a little complicated: I'm trying to incrementally convert a legacy app to a new error display style. So what I came up with is to use a separate resource bundle with the new errors.header and errors.footer strings. I think that will work, but now I can't get Struts to recognize that I'm deliberately creating an error (for testing). I'll start a new thread on that. But thanks for the quickly reply!
