--------------------------------

         Priority: Minor  (was: Major)

> If I have 2 resource bundles:
> messages_fr.properties
> messages.properties (containing en_US)
> and my JVM is a French one (Locale.getDefault()=fr_FR)
> then struts will always use messages_fr.properties whatever is the parameter used for
struts.locale or request_locale (even if I explicitly require en_US).
> This is because of the standard ResourceBundle.getBundle() lookup algorithm.

> http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=5086301
> http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4303146
> Potential solutions:
> 1) Use new JDK 1.6 feature: ResourceBundle.Control to specify the fallback Locale
> 2) Don't use getBundle and implement your own resource bundle lookup mecanism like in
JSF
