Struts example trouble

I'm trying to get an idea of what Struts is by running Thomas Paul's examples. I thought I'd followed the instructions properly, but after 2 installation attempts I can't even get a test index page to appear from the struts directory, much less the example, which makes me think I've set up the environment wrong (plus the fact that I'm environment-impaired). I've obviously either missed something, or just don't understand. Here's my directory structure & struts-config.xml. Where have I gone horribly wrong?






Many Thanks!

Sorry 'bout that. I don't get any message in the console window, but the browser gives me "The requested resource (/struts/jsp/index.jsp) is not available", or "The requested resource (/struts/jsp/LoginView.jsp) is not available."

Any help?
Thanks!

Ok - I just noticed that I do get an error in my log file...



Does anyone know what this means? I have not been able to hunt it down.

Your ActionServlet isn't loading. My guess is that there may be a problem with your web.xml.

Hmmmm... I noticed that my web.xml has a tablib entry for struts-template, but I don't have a file by that name. I tried taking out the entry, but got the same error on restarting the server. It's not in my download package... do you know what that's all about?

Here's my web.xml... Many Thanks

If nothing else works, try reinstalling Tomcat. It is a fairly non-intrusive procedure.

The struts template taglib was in version 1.0 of Struts. It has been deprecated (and removed maybe?) and replaced by Tiles.

AH - HA!!!

In the first part of the 1.0 tutorial, it suggests copying struts.jar & servlet.jar into your java directory's jre\lib\ext directory. Apparently this is a no-no. Remove them, & it runs fine!! :-)

Yay!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
