In theory you can use LocalizedTextUtil and its findText() methods but
right now I'm working on converting this static util class into a bean
(because of many reasons) so you will have the same problem as with
DbConnectionManager at some point.

Another option is to use ActionContext but that can be only used in a
Enum's method and when that method will be called from within a Struts
