Hi kavitha

I think struts-blank.war is some sample application.Rather then getting some where you can develop your sample application.

Hi Vidya Sagar
According to my knowledge it is an application and it contains some .tld files and .jar files and all. Inorder to create and deploy the application which I developed my own I need that application to extract.

The struts-blank.war file comes with the binary download of Struts. You'll find it in the webapps directory once you've unzipped the download file.

Unpacking this jar file and using it as a template for a new Struts project is actually a very good idea. It has all the jar files, a sample struts-config.xml file, a sample ApplicationResources.properties file, and pretty much everything else you need.

Hi Merrill Higginson,

Thanks alot for your reply
Then I want one more thing now I downloaded, struts,tomcat,tomcat plugin,Easy struts.
Actually I am willing to run Struts applications using Eclipse tool. I copied tomcat plugin to Eclipse->plugin. and I extracted tomcatplugin->Devloader.zip to tomcat->server->classes.
Now my problem is I am not able to see the tomcat icon ie., start tomcat,stop tomcat on the Eclipse editor. If you have any idea please tell me about that how to configure that.

My suggestion would be to use the Callisto project to help coordinate and install your web development plugins. I tried it, and got a Tomcat Server running through eclipse without any problems.

Start by clicking here, selecting the "I build web applications" link, and just follow the instructions from there.

hi kavitha
you can try this one :
Start Eclipse.
Configure Tomcat plugin.
Menu "Workbench" -> Item "Preferences" -> Option "Tomcat" -> "Tomcat version", select "4.x" -> "Tomcat home", specify <Tomcat install dir> -> Under Option "Tomcat", suboption "JVM Settings" -> "Classpath", add the Jar/Zip for tools.jar. (If you use JDK 1.4 at C:\jdk1.4, it is "C:\jdk1.4\lib\tools.jar"). This is for compiling JSP.
Set classpath variable TOMCAT_HOME for project classpath reference.
Menu "Workbench" -> Item "Preferences" -> option "Java" -> option "Classpath Variables" -> New variable, name "TOMCAT_HOME", value <TOMCAT install dir> (Then in .classpath of your project, you use TOMCAT_HOME for variable references.)
Make sure Tomcat menu accessible.
Set to "Java" perspective, and make sure Tomcat menu and its 3 toolbar buttons are available. (If not, Menu Perspective -> Item "Customize" -> option "Other" -> option "Tomcat", check it.)
Use menu or toolbar to Start/Stop Tomcat
(The plugin will start/stop Tomcat as a debugging mode VM inside Eclipse, so debugging into Servlets and JSP-generated-Servlets becomes possible.)
Note:
For your Eclipse project, .classpath needs this to compile Servlets:
<classpathentry kind="var" path="TOMCAT_HOME/lib/jasper-runtime.jar"/>
<classpathentry kind="var" path="TOMCAT_HOME/common/lib/servlet.jar"/>
