my struts-config.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE struts-config PUBLIC "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 1.1/EN" "">
<form-bean name="loginform" type="calvin.Loginform" />
<action path="/Login" type="calvin.LoginAction" name="loginform" >
<forward name="success" path="/index.jsp" />
<message-resources parameter="" />
<html:form action="Login" name="loginform" type="calvin.Loginform">
UserName: <html:text property="username"/>
Password: <html assword property="password"/>

Exception: Cannot find ActionMappings or ActionFormBeans collection  
Can anybody tell where is the problem? Thanks a lot.

I will do the best with what God gave me!

Is the location of u'r struts-config in your web.xml and if it is is it proper? the form and the action mapping and the jsp all seem fine, YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO A .do IF YOU ARE USING A STRUTS FORM TAG.

check your web.xml file and make sure that all your references to your "WEB_INF" subdir are CAPITALIZED. The application cannot read the struts-config.xml file if it referenced as '/web-inf/struts-config.xml'

this error also occurs if you don't include some jar-files like commons-*.jar that struts need.

I think that the Exception is not useful in this context.

Good night

I had the same problem. My app was working on wsad bot not on RAD.
And in web.xml file
I changed the following lines
It worked for me

I also faced same error , Actually what I did is declared a property twice
<form-property name="uname" type="java.lang.String" />
<form-property name="uname" type="java.lang.String" />

I removed It and problem solved
