Hi Friends,
I am tryin to learn Struts using �Wiley Mastering Jakarta Struts� books..where he states to install Struts and copy these files :
� struts.jar
� commons-beanutils.jar
� commons-collections.jar
� commons-dbcp.jar
� commons-digester.jar
� commons-logging.jar
� commons-pool.jar
� commons-services.jar
� commons-validator.jar

But I cant find the commons-services.jar file anywhere. And I could get these files under tomcat5.0:
Commons-collections3.1.jar
Commons-dbcp1.2.1.jar
commons-pool1.2.jar

please tell me where to find the services file and how to proceed further.
Thanks

Hi,

Even iam also new to Struts. Iam running programs using Weblogic. Even in my lib directory i have only commons-beanutils.jar,commons-collections.jar,commons-digester.jar,commons-logging.jar,commons-validator.jar,jakarta-oro.jar,struts.jar,xerces.jar and jdbc2_0-stdext.jar
Still iam able to run my programs. I dont know exactly what for commons-services.jar. First u know that is it compulsory to be in lib. And let me know what for it is.

burn = figurative. that's the absolute worst book to start struts on. it's out-dated (3 years old! that's like human year to dog year in web development age) w/ poor examples and confusing suggestions based on struts 1.0 + anticipated 1.1beta. clearly from your question, it's already a bad start. i had to re-learn some struts stuff because of it (and that was 2.5 years ago).

a much better book is http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0072231319/johnwilliamwa-20 . else, you're better off following online tutorials (do a quick google search).

I personally like Struts in Action. No, it's not the most up-to-date version of Struts anymore but it's still a decent book.

What version of Struts are you using? You don't need common-services.jar for Struts 1.2
