Cannot retrieve mapping for action

Hey guys,

I'm very new to struts and I'm having a problem calling the proper action from my config file. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here's what I'm getting:

My config file (struts-config-handsfree.xml):

The entry in my web.xml file for this config file :

And finally, a portion of my jsp that is trying to fire the action "/userRegister":

My colleagues are telling me that there might be a spelling or case difference between the jsp form action and the action path in the config file but ive tried to fix this and i still get the "Cannot retrieve mapping for action /userRegister" error.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time!

Try this in your web.xml instead of what you are doing
