Plugin to simplify working with JSP/Struts and resource file

Hello.

I work a lot with JSP-files within IDEA and have a lot of references to resource texts (using Struts) like this:

]]>

It's somewhat difficult to always remember what your resource keys stand for. Would it be possible to write a plugin that some way shows the real text (from a specified resource file) instead of the key? Is there maybe already such a plugin?

Bye,
Dag.

It sounds like what you want is to evaluate the tag. Kind of like when
you put the cursor over a variable during debug.

I think this would be an excellent idea for the VF plugin. If
implemented, it would probably only be implemented for JSF (since it is
the standard).

Properties Editor Plugin can give hint for resource key in java file ,but it doesn't work for jsp file. I think PE author can do it for us. Waiting..... :)

Nice IDEA I'll add into lookup list hints showing key value and add lookups support in JSP files.

TIA,
Dmitry
