I think your web.xml is missing the decleration and mapping of Action Servlet

As the log file says


org/apache/commons/beanutils/Converter class not found exception


you have to check the all jars files required are there in your WEB-INF/lib directory

commons-beanutils.jar
commons-collections.jar
commons-digester.jar
commons-fileupload.jar
commons-logging.jar
commons-validator.jar
jakarta-oro.jar
struts.jar

You have an app. mortarTest which is giving the problem. Undeploy that application and try to run simple Struts example.

I think that application misses some jar files.

Hi Rizwan,

You haven't given us very much to go on. Are you deploying the application as a WAR, an EAR, or as an exploded directory? When you say that all the jars are in the lib directory, where are you looking, the source tree, the build directory, or Tomcat's webapps directory?

Usually the best way to begin diagnosing this type of problem is to look first at what's actually being deployed -- in other words start by looking in the webapps directory in your Tomcat installation. If you're deploying as an EAR, copy it to a temp directory and unpack it to get the WAR file. (If you're deploying as a WAR, this step is obviously unnecessary.) In any case, you then can list the WAR's contents by using the 'jar' command. For example, to list out the contents of struts-blank.war on my machine, I'd do the following:

This gives you a relatively easy way to determine whether the project is getting deployed correctly, and allows you to be certain about the locations of various application resources at deployment time. Please let me know if this is any help. If you're still having problems, you can paste a copy of the WAR file listing (usually referred to as the manifest) here, which might make it easier to figure out what's going on.
