Subject RE: ActionMessages won't display

Thanks for response.
I had tried that but to no avail (I mentioned it near the end of my original message)

I am not clear as to what 'id="messages"' which appears in the html:messages tag is supposed
to refer to.
According to the docs:

"The name of a page scope JSP bean that will contain the current element of the collection
of messages on each iteration, if it is not null. [Required]"

Do I have to define this bean at any point other than in the tag?

Try setting the message="true" attribute of the <html:messages> tag. The
default is false which means that you are actually testing for ActionErrors
not ActionMessages.

Subject: ActionMessages won't display

I am hoping someone can help with an ActionMessages problem

I am setting ActionMessages in my action, but they are not appearing in the
page. The action code is:

if(showDetails.size() == 0 ) {
	LOGGER.debug("no ShowDetails found");
            ActionMessages messages = new ActionMessages();
            messages.add(ActionMessages.GLOBAL_MESSAGE, new
ActionMessage("errors.none.found", "showDetail"));
            return mapping.findForward("none");

The JSP code is:

<logic:present name="<%=Action.MESSAGE_KEY%>"> 
	messages found:
	<html:messages id="messages"
name="<%=ActionMessages.GLOBAL_MESSAGE%>" bundle="JSP_MESSAGES"/>

The log output confirms that the java snippet is called.
The 'messages found' string appears in the JSP, but no error message. I have
tried various configurations of params to the 'messages' tag, including
adding "message='true'".

I have the following in struts-config.xml

<message-resources key="JSP_MESSAGES" parameter="jsp-messages"

I have a file in 'WEB-INF/classes' called ''

This contains the string: 'errors.none.found=No {0}(s) were found'

Hope someone can help - this one's got me stumped!
