Hi All,
We are using Struts on WAS3.5.2 and when we try to host a sample struts
application we are getting the following Error.
unable to locate /WEB-INF/struts-config.xml
The Directory Structure of the Web Application is as follows :
Document Root : $WAS_HOME/default_host/struts-example/web
Class Path : $WAS_HOME/default_host/struts-example/servlets
- struts-example
- web
-WEB-INF
- servlets
-WEB-INF
I have copied the WEB-INF folder into web and as well to servlets
directory.
the struts-config.xml file is residing in the WEB-INF directory .
Pls let me know how to resolve this..
Thanks in Advance
Sateesh

There are two ways of going about this:
1) register the struts-example.war file with WAS.
This way you dont have to worry about creating the WAS specific structure (web & servlet directories), however, this will be a pain during development, considering that u'll have to rebuild the jar after every small change to the application.
2) Another way of going about it is to change the reference location in web.xml. The Action Servlet definition contains a piece of xml code like
<init-param>
<param-name>config</param-name>
<param-value>/WEB-INF/struts-config.xml</param-value>
</init-param>
Change the value here and it should work fine.
Cheers,
Vineet.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
