The parameter key used to retrieve the message from page, request, session, or application scope.


Name of the property for which messages should be retrieved. If not specified, all messages (regardless of property) are retrieved.


By default the tag will retrieve the bean it will iterate over from the Globals.ERROR_KEY constant string, but if this attribute is set to 'true' the bean will be retrieved from the Globals.MESSAGE_KEY constant string. Also if this is set to 'true', any value assigned to the name attribute will be ignored.
