Property Bean Not displaying on JSP Page

Hi,

I've created a Bean in my servlet-context.xml file.  It references a properties file and I would like to call and display those properties on my JSP page.  I'm using Spring 3.1 MVC.

Here's my bean from Spring's servlet-context.xml:

    <beans:bean id="propertyConfigurer"   
      class="org.springframework.beans.factory.config.PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer">
            <beans:property name="location" value="/WEB-INF/app.properties" />
    </beans:bean> 

Open in new window


Here are the contents of my app.properties file in WEB-INF:

app.env=development
app.VersionNo=v9.0
app.VersionBuild=.1

Open in new window


Here are the attempts to access the values in the jsp:

<title>${VersionNo} ${app.VersionNo}</title>

Open in new window


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you are using spring tags then try the following.

1. load spring tags in jsp
<%@ taglib prefix="spring" uri="http://www.springframework.org/tags"%>

2. use spring taf to render the property
<title>${VersionNo} <spring:message code="app.VersionNo" /></title>

It helped but I wish there was a way to do this without using the Spring tags.
