How did you connect?

I have no problem with connecting the DB in Structs.

For simplicity, you can create a JDBC reference in the ActionDispatcher, and connect to the DB by JDBC driver.

If you know a bit about JNDI, you may bind the connection reference to the JNDI, and look it up in the Action method.

What is the problem you actually faced?

Expresso (open source) provides much in the way of quickly creating databased applications with Struts integration. The new release Expresso 5.5 now integrates with Struts 1.1. You can find it at
I agree. Here's the link:
