hello all of you

I am trying to follow a tutorial that uses a 1.1 dtd of struts:

my example is coded this way...with the 1.3 dtd :

that causes this awful exception:

Is struts 1.3 do not use no more <data-sources> ?

PLease, is anyone knows how to exploit a data source with the 1.3 version?

thanka a lot!
