There is a need to check the credential of user from database i.e. if currently logged on user is in Permitted_Users table then allow to further enter in my application.I have created LoginAction class containing databse connection and authentication logic and want to execute this logic first and hence I have added in web.xml

but it is giving HTTP Status 404 error. Please share if you have any solution for my problem. I am using Struts 1.0

The information you've provided is not enough to help you out. There might be a deployment error in the application, check the server logs to see if deployment of your application failed. Did you configure struts in your web.xml??
