struts problems with build 5734

I'm trying to get the blank struts 1.3.5 app to work in my project. I have the struts libs listed as a dependency (but not exporting them).

1. struts-config cannot find MessageResources with
<message-resources parameter="MessageResources" />

My is located in my resources directory. That directory is mapped to the content root "/".

2. validator-rules.xml does not recognize and of the errors.* constants - problem related to item 1?

3. I also get this error when trying to build the project.

For point one, make sure your properties files are mapped to the "properties" file type, rather than a plain text file type - this one bit me this week.
