I am new to struts...

I want to use Struts 1.3 & I downloaded the Struts (1.3.10) package.
In lib directory I got all jar files to include.

But how to get the struts-config.xml, validator.xml & tiles-defs.xml.

I am using Eclipse v.3.3.

If you downloaded the full setup of Struts, then you will find "struts-1.3.10-apps" folder, which contain one "struts-blank.war" file, unzipped, it and you will get base folder structure for struts project as well as required files.

But You wouldn't find a tiles.xml, for that you have to configure yourself, Follow this tutorial

Sagar! I downloaded the struts-1.3.10-all.zip from: http://struts.apache.org/download.cgi

Neither it contains struts-1.3.10-apps folder nor have struts-blank.war.

It is a complete bundle download.

Please help...

Not exactly the same folder name, which I had given, but similar to that.

Look for something like this,

"\struts-1.3.9\struts-1.3.9-apps\struts-1.3.9\apps\struts-blank-1.3.9.war"

[I'm using Struts 1.3.9 distro version]

Such a weird change in paths from 1.3.9 to 1.3.10

I am again in one new search,

could you help me to find these tld files:

struts-bean.tld
struts-html.tld
struts-logic.tld
struts-nested.tld
struts-tiles.tld

tiles-defs.xml
c.tld

are those files come with struts jar files?
do we need to include those exclusively along with the web.xml & struts-config.xml?

No need to configure this, Just use them by declaring,

in JSP page. I don't know about tiles, never used, Isn't that tutorial helpful.
