The strange thing is I didn't change anything except for the two empty files I created. So
I can say that the problem isn't hard-coded text in the application or messages missing in
one or the other resource. Maybe I got something wrong with the configuration? Is there another
file where I have to configurate something related to the message resources except for the
struts-config.xml I mentioned above?
