Where did you kept your index.jsp file? it should be inside the Examle1 folder and not inside the WEB-INF or its subfolder. The url localhost:8080/Example1/index.jsp will work if every other codes you have written correctly.

How is this problem related to struts?? I don't see any struts libraries or configuration files. You seem to be struggling with basics of web application. Please read a few tutorials or a book. You might be doing a lot of things wrong which might be hard to track. I don't see a web.xml in your directory structure, where did you put it?? Your directory structure is not very clear and hard to understand which files are in which folder...
