When you download struts 1.1 from the jakarta site you will get both
validation-rules.xml(dtd also) file and validation_1_1.dtd file Since validation.xml file is the application specific i think we have to create the file and plug into the config file
Here is a simple example for validation.xml file
<constant-value>^\(? (\d{3}\)?[-| ]?(\d{4}$</constant-value>
<form name="chkoutForm">
<field property="phone"
depends="required, mask">
<msg name="mask" key="phone.invalidFormat"/>
<arg0 key="registrationForm.firstname.displayname"/>
Configure the corresonding DTD file into this
If you have any doubt just go through jakarta.apache .org site. it is very useful .
All the best try this

In the struts install directory. Look for a directory called webapps. In web apps there is a starter war file called blank.war. Blank.war has the files you want under WEB-INF.
