This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
*Please* don't use the old Struts 1 tag prefix for the Struts 2 tag libraries--besides that it's just misleading, it's also inaccurate, as the S2 tags include a lot more than just HTML-emitting tags. The canonical taglib prefix for the S2 tags is simply "s".
The error message is telling you *precisely* what's wrong. S2's text tag doesn't render a text input field.
