    fmt:message inside c:forEach

    mvitale Newbie

      I'm building an internationalized web app that needs to be deployed on JBoss 4.0.1SP1. It's my understanding that JB4 comes with Tomcat 5.0.28 inside it. More on that later.

      So I have my JSP page, and it contains the following code:

      <span align="left"><fmt:message key="OrderList.Label.PlaceNewOrder" bundle="${myResources}" />
      <select name="orderType">
       <option selected value="0"><Select Order Type></option>
       <c:forEach items="${OrderListForm.orderTypeList}" var="result">
      <%--
       <option value="${result.id}">1</option>
      --%>
       <option value="${result.id}">
       <fmt:message key="${result.description}" bundle="${myResources}" />
       </option>
       </c:forEach>
      </select>
      </span>
      


      When I go to view this JSP page inside JB4, I receive the following error:

      An exception of the class javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: ServletException in '/jsp/oe/OrderList.jsp': Unable to compile class for JSP Generated servlet error: /usr/local/jboss-4.0.1sp1/server/default/work/jboss.web/localhost/_/org/apache/jsp/jsp/oe/OrderList_jsp.java:176: _jspx_meth_fmt_message_1(javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.JspTag,javax.servlet.jsp.PageContext,int[]) in org.apache.jsp.jsp.oe.OrderList_jsp cannot be applied to (org.apache.taglibs.standard.tag.rt.core.ForEachTag,javax.servlet.jsp.PageContext,int[]) if (_jspx_meth_fmt_message_1(_jspx_th_c_forEach_0, _jspx_page_context, _jspx_push_body_count_c_forEach_0)) ^ 1 error arose


      If, however, I enable the line just containing "1" for the displayed value, and comment out the fmt:message and surrounding option tags, the code works and displays beautifully inside JB4. A quick view of the source even shows that ${result.id} is changing as expected.

      So, back to Tomcat, as mentioned above. I went out and downloaded Tomcat 5.0.28 from the Jakarta site and installed it locally. I deployed the exact same .war file that's in my JB server/default/deploy directory, and went to the same Order List page as above (with the fmt:message enabled). TC5.0.28 is able to display this page correctly, with no problems.

      What am I doing wrong? Why does the same .war file work in standalone Tomcat 5.0.28, but fails inside JBoss (which contains Tomcat 5.0.28)?

      Thanks,
