Encounte this error:No action instance for path /logon could be created

Hi,every one,

My cicrument is Tomcat 5.0 + struts 1.1,this is a simple logon page,I put
LogonAction.class in WEB_INF\classes\netcom\docmanager\transcation

struts_config.xml is:
...
<form-bean name="logonForm" type="netcom.docmanager.formbean.LogonForm"/>
</form-beans>
<action-mappings>
<action path="/logon" name="logonForm" type=" netcom.docmanager.transcation.LogonAction " scope="request" >
<forward name="failure" path="/ logon.jsp"/>
<forward name="success" path="/ mainmenu.jsp"/>
</action>
</action-mappings>
...

when address the url ".../logon.do",following error info is given:

"No action instance for path /logon could be created
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: netcom.docmanager.transcation.LogonAction"

but I call "java netcom.docmanager.transcation.LogonAction",this class can be found,so this is not the issue about classpath,

Can anybody know what's wrong with it?

Well, everything looks fine so it has to be a classpath issue. It's been a while since I really messed with them but I'll give it a shot.

Since it works in java_home but not in tomcat (?catalina_home??), try adding java_home to tomcat's path if it isn't already.

Another thing to doublecheck is if the spellings are lining up. I couldn't help but notice transcation in your post when I believe transaction was intended.

Good luck!

Hi,Marc
thank you for your help,
you point out that the 'transaction' is my real intention,that's true,It's luck that this wrong spell happen on the begin of this program,so its used
later consistently,it does not result in this error.

and in you post:

I thought since the directory structure of servlet app
is a standard,the container will know the class is in '/WEB_INF/classes/'
before.

I don't know where to set the classpath of a servlet container,(web.xml,or struts_config.xml)?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
