Description Dutrieux Olivier 2004-06-14 08:52:22 UTC
I try this in a JSP page :

<fmt:bundle basename="ApplicationResources" prefix="errorSession.">
  <fmt:message key="msg"><fmt:param value="30"/></fmt:message>

where in my property file : errorSession.msg=It's a error due to {0} minutes of

The result of my jsp page is : Its a error due to {0} minutes of inactivity

The problem is due to simple quote ('). Where I delete the simple quote that's
work perfectly. If I double the simple quote that work perfectly to.
But when there is not parameter in the message, the simple quote is display

N.B: I use JSTL v1.0.5

best regards

Please see the JavaDoc for MessageFormat:


Specifically, the paragraph that begins, "Within a String, "''" represents a
single quote."

Your are seeing the expected behavior, use two single quotes.
