I am attempting the Struts tutorial for struts 1.1
http://www.coreservlets.com/Apache-Struts-Tutorial/Struts-Actions.html#Ex2-Step4.

When I try to run the first example I get the following error:

error description: The requested resource (/actions/register1.do) is not available.

The JSP has the following call
<FORM ACTION="../actions/register1.do" METHOD="POST">

This will call the following java class : coreservlets.RegisterAction1

which is mapped in the servletconfig.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<!DOCTYPE struts-config PUBLIC ... >
<struts-config>
<action-mappings>
<action path="/actions/register1"
type="coreservlets.RegisterAction1">
<forward name="success"
path="/WEB-INF/results/result1.jsp"/>
</action>
</action-mappings>
</struts-config>

There is no mention of using a web.xml file so far but I added it so that it could call the tag libries. Should there also me a mapping in the web.xml file I saw a extract from someone who had the same problem to add the following to my web.xml

<!-- Standard Action Servlet Mapping -->
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>action</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>*.do</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

This called the following error:

SEVERE: Parse Error at line 7 column 80: Attribute "types" must be declared for
element type "action".
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Attribute "types" must be declared for element t
pe "action".
at org.apache.xerces.util.ErrorHandlerWrapper.createSAXParseException(U
known Source)
at org.apache.xerces.util.ErrorHandlerWrapper.error(Unknown Source)
at org.apache.xerces.impl.XMLErrorReporter.reportError(Unknown Source)
at org.apache.xerces.impl.XMLErrorReporter.reportError(Unknown Source)
at org.apache.xerces.impl.dtd.XMLDTDValidator.addDTDDefaultAttrsAndVali
ate(Unknown Source)

I know how to write servlets but not actions in the web.xml config file.

Thanks for any help.

Thanks Marc,

Will attempt this one, the other one seems too complex and is not very good at breaking down each segment.

I have built the web.xml but am still getting that same error : The requested resource (/actions/register1.do) is not available.

web.xml is as follows:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<!DOCTYPE web-app
PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.2//EN"
"http://java.sun.com/j2ee/dtds/web-app_2_2.dtd">

<web-app>
<display-name>Struts Example Application</display-name>

<!-- Action Servlet Configuration -->
<servlet>
<servlet-name>action</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet</servlet-class>
<init-param>
<param-name>config</param-name>
<param-value>/WEB-INF/struts-config.xml</param-value>
</init-param>
<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>


<!-- Action Servlet Mapping -->
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>action</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>*.do</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

<!-- Application Tag Library Descriptor -->
<taglib>
<taglib-uri>/tags/struts-bean</taglib-uri>
<taglib-location>/WEB-INF/struts-bean.tld</taglib-location>
</taglib>

<taglib>
<taglib-uri>/tags/struts-html</taglib-uri>
<taglib-location>/WEB-INF/struts-html.tld</taglib-location>
</taglib>

<taglib>
<taglib-uri>/tags/struts-logic</taglib-uri>
<taglib-location>/WEB-INF/struts-logic.tld</taglib-location>
</taglib>

<taglib>
<taglib-uri>/tags/struts-nested</taglib-uri>
<taglib-location>/WEB-INF/struts-nested.tld</taglib-location>
</taglib>

<taglib>
<taglib-uri>/tags/struts-tiles</taglib-uri>
<taglib-location>/WEB-INF/struts-tiles.tld</taglib-location>
</taglib>

</web-app>

If anyone ever solves this I would be glad to know what the problem was.

What does your struts-config.xml look like?
