Cannot generate classes after inserting Struts stuff

my app was generating class files alright until i was
in EJB tier development.
When i got to WEB tier, i decided to go with Struts.
Created a couple JSPs, ActionForms and Actions
(without modifying EJBs) and run it. Everything is ok
till that point.
Then, i came back to EJB development again and for the
first time a tried to generate classes after including
Struts stuff in project, i got the following message
from my xdoclet generation.
[ejbdoclet] BUILD FAILED: org.apache.commons.logging.LogConfigurationException:

I took a look at xdoclet.xml file and saw this piece
of commented code.

I don't have any struts generated form by EJBs (i
generate them with EasyStruts).
I don't know what is going on, can anyone help me

Hi everyone.

Here's a little recipe that worked for me (I'm using Eclipse 2.1.3, Lomboz 213 and EasyStruts 0.70RC1, but it should work well with other versions)

1. Just in case, comment <strutsform /> in <EJB_MODULE>/META-INF/xdoclet.xml

2. In the same file, look for <fileset dir="${eclipse.home}/plugins">

3. After <include name="**/com.objectlearn.*/**/jakarta/*.jar"/> add the line <include name="**/com.cross.easystruts.*/**/*.jar"/>

This should add the easystruts.jar file to the classpath and prevent the EasyStrutsLogFactory error, 'cause the "missing" class is in that jar.

Good Luck!!!

Sorry for digging up a probably dead thread, but I encountered the same problem and I discovered that it was due to my malformed struts-config.xml ! An <action> tag had a missing </action>.

Just like to add my 2-cents worth.

I agree. Here's the link:
