Struts version problem

Currently I am using Struts 1.2.x version and I want to upgrade it higher version. Please help to suggest whether upgrade it to 1.3 will be better or 2.0
I have tried to upgrade it to 1.3 and downloaded the entire struts 1.3.10 package. But in the blank struts war file I couldn't find the validator-rules.xml.

Where can i get the validator-rules.xml file. The main reason for upgradtion is, since for validator framework more features were added.

Previously I have used the MyEclispe and created the web project then added the Struts 1.2 capabilities.
When I downloded the blank struts war, I have copied all the .jar files related to struts 1.3.10 and placed it in the existing lib folder.

Upgrading to Struts 2 would involve, at a minimum, completely rewriting all your JSP files. There's a Struts 1 plugin that allows the use of Struts 1 actions in Struts 2 applications, but I wouldn't bother, so you'd have to rewrite the web layer as well.
I agree. Here's the link:
