I'm very new to struts and just trying my first struts program. It is the famous HFSJ beerapp example. So I have: form.jsp (directs to SelectBeer.do) result.jsp test.model.BeerExpert.class test.web.BeerSelectAction.class test.web.BeerSelectForm.class
I'm not sure what the problem with your application is, since you didn't provide us with any details, but here's what I think is the problem with the original post:
I have copied to my WEB-INF/lib/ files: commons-beanutils.jar commons-digester.jar struts.jar
These jar files are not enough. All the jar files in the /lib directory of the unzipped download file must be copied to your WEB-INF/lib directory.
This error is an indication that the Struts ActionServlet did not initialize properly. The real error is logged to the tomcat log files when the application starts up. You can find these log files in the <tomcat root>/logs directory. Look for the ones with the most recent dates.
i'm probably a bit late to help here, but I modified catalina.bat and added the jars in the CLASSPATH there.
