in a sample program they are using
but im not able to compile that source code
the code is

package app;
import org.apache.struts.action.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
public class RegisterAction extends Action {
public ActionForward perform (ActionMapping mapping,
ActionForm form,
HttpServletRequest req,
HttpServletResponse res) {
// b Cast the form to the RegisterForm
RegisterForm rf = (RegisterForm) form;
String username = rf.getUsername();
String password1 = rf.getPassword1();
String password2 = rf.getPassword2();
// c Apply business logic
if (password1.equals(password2)) {
try {
// d Return ActionForward for success
return mapping.findForward("success");
} catch (UserDirectoryException e) {
return mapping.findForward("failure");

is the class UserDirectory included defaultly or should i import
from any package
please help me in this

I suspect this example came from the book "Struts in Action". The UserDirectory class is one that the book directs you to write and the book provides the code for it. It is not one of the standard Struts classes.
