Tiles, putList and tiles-defs.xml

Good day.

I am going nutz trying to figure out why I can make my simple tiles work, but when I try and use putList from tile-defs.xml in my menu tile, everything goes south...

I've tried Tomcat 4.1 and 5.0.28. I tried starting and restarting the container.


struts-config.xml snip...

And calling it in it's simplest form, it appears to break...

and my "common layout" page...

The error is innocuous:
SEVERE: ServletException in '/menubar.jsp': Cannot find bean items in any scope

The odd thing is that this example in one for or another lives in an article by Cedric Dumoulin, a couple books: Professional Struts and Programming Jakarta Struts among many other examples.

It seems odd that something so trivial is this difficult to make work.

Anyone have any ideas why it might be breaking?

I agree. Here's the link:
