Description Kan Ogawa 2004-11-30 10:08:29 UTC
I installed Tomcat 5.0.30, and customized tomcat-users.xml only.
When I open Tomcat administration tool (/admin) on web browser, 
jsp exception occurs and a blank page is displayed.

javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: Cannot find message resources under key

This probably has to do with us (me ;)) making the admin webapp work with 
Struts 1.2 ;(  Any more details you can provide would be helpful.  Until then, 
if you need the admin webapp you might want to drop back to 5.0.28.

I reproduced the issue you reported on my Solaris and Windows boxes, both in 
the English locale.  So we definitely have a serious issue here.  The top of my 
stack trace is

WARNING: Unexpected error forwarding to login page
javax.servlet.ServletException: Cannot find messages under key 
at org.apache.jasper.runtime.PageContextImpl.doHandlePageException
at org.apache.jasper.runtime.PageContextImpl.handlePageException
at admin.login_jsp._jspService(login_jsp.java:115)

Looking at the struts.jar version for the admin webapp, it's 1.2.4 as intended.

Fixed in the workspace.  Try the following patch to make it work with 5.0.30
bundle in jakarta-tomcat-5.0.30\server\webapps\admin\WEB-INF\struts-config.xml.

Once installed the struts-config.xml I have the application loading but once
logged in, the tree menu on the left fails to react to any action. 

localhost_admin_log.2004-12-09.txt: this is the log of actions I clicked, I'm
not pasting the other logs as there were no error or exceptions.

There's already a different bug open, and resolved in CVS, for what you're
