Hi All,

I developed struts2 application using the version 2.0.14 .

Now I want use annotaion in 2.0.14 but the required jar file i.e. struts2-convention-plugin-2.1.6.jar is provided in the version 2.1.

Annotation woks fine in 2.1.6 but i want to run in 2.0.14 .

It throws the below error while integrating annotation to struts2.0.14

SEVERE: Exception starting filter struts2
Unable to load bean: typerg.apache.struts2.convention.ActionConfigBuilder classrg.apache.struts2.convention.PackageBasedActionConfigBuilder - bean - jar:file:/D:/learn/workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp2/wtpwebapps/quickstart/WEB-INF/lib/struts2-convention-plugin-2.1.6.jar!/struts-plugin.xml:32:137
at com.opensymphony.xwork2.config.providers.XmlConfigurationProvider.register(

Please let me know to how to achive annotation (mainly multiple results)

You can't just randomly mix Struts versions like that--I rather doubt you'll be able to use the Convention plugin with Struts 2.0; you'd need to use the older Zero Configuration stuff:
I agree. Here's the link:
