I am able to reach the index.html through welcome-file-list perfectly
However when I try to click the link on index.html to pull up the login.jsp I get the following error
HTTP Status 500 -
description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.
There is no Action mapped for action name showLogin. - [unknown location]
Does your log file show any errors on startup? You should have "devMode" turned on during development--it increases the quantity of error messages and reporting available. You can also try using the config-browser plugin to examine what Struts 2 thinks your configuration is.
I don't see anything obviously wrong, so I'm guessing there's a problem on startup. What library files are you deploying?
