Hi,

Can someone please help me understand how the application server gets to know about the location of struts.xml and whether it has to load it or not.

Cheers!

Hi Manuj,

basically in struts 1.x it is picked from WEB INF folder automatically and in 2.x we put it in classpath so that server loads it at start up...

Hi Amarjeet,

Thanks for your response, I got your point, but i have an attached question does this mean that when we specify "struts" in web.xml as filter mapping - it guides the application server to pick up struts related configuration in the context?

Regards,
Manuj
