Hi

Am new to struts. I like to know where to load the properties file.. In servlet we have init() to load the properties. Similarly please suggest me where to load in Struts

Constructor ?. Which Constructor ?.

I guess better option is to extend the Action Servlet

After extending in the web.xml

<servlet-name>action</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet</servlet-class>

Instead ActionServlet I configured my servlet I mean suclass of ActionServlet, am unable to start tomcat. Please help

No, ActionServlet should almost never need to be modified.

What kind of properties are you trying to load? Why not do it outside of the Struts framework in an application context listener or initialization servlet? If you *must* do it in Struts, use a plugin.

I just extended the TilesRequestProcessor and added my property file loading and log file initialization in the init() and everything works fine.

Modified struts-config.xml

Instead of <controller processorClass="org.apache.struts.tiles.TilesRequestProcessor"/>

added
<controller>
<set-property property="processorClass" value="MyProcessor"/>
</controller>

Could you please tell me whether am on the rite path.

Not really--why change something you don't have to when there are already mechanisms in place that don't require work elsewhere?

What was wrong with the suggestions I already gave?

(And what log file configuration are you doing? Why not just let the logging framework handle that?)
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
