Hi,

I'm testing the following code in order to internationalize my application:

---------------------------------------------------------------------
      Locale locale = new Locale("de");
      ResourceBundle resources;
      resources = ResourceBundle.getBundle("Messages", locale);
      System.out.print(resources.getString("settings_settings"));
---------------------------------------------------------------------

This works in standard Java applications.
- But when the code is put into a JSP, the error message says, the resource cannot be found.

(Messages_de.properties is in the same folder as test.java, resp., test.jsp. I'm using the NetBeans IDE.)

What's wrong?

- Thanks.

Just a guess, but you should be able to test it quickly enough.

Try putting the resource file in the WEB-INF directory of your web app.

If that doesn't work, maybe consider using the i18n taglib from apache?

I think it should be in WEB-INF/classes dir.

Oh.  It's in the *classes* subdirectory.

Thanks kennethxu.  I was close with my guess ;-)

Thank you, that way, it works - and please excuse that I'm trying to extend the question:

Actually, the JSP (in the root web) calls a method of a class (in WEB-INFO/somefolder/internat.java), passing the name of the properties bundle as a parameter. - Where should I put the .properties file??

It doesn't matter where you java SOURCE file is.
I assume you have your java class in WEB-INF/classes, then the properties file should still in the same place.
