We configure struts-config.xml in our web.xml.

Does it mean only web.xml file is read during container startup.
or does the container read both files during startup.

The container only reads the web.xml file. The sturts-config.xml is read by the struts framework. Also as far as I remember, it is not compulsory to declare struts-config.xml in web.xml. You just need to define the ActionServlet as a servlet...
