I am facing a problem while working with struts 2.

My JSP file is:



<%@page contentType="text/html" pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<%@taglib uri="/struts-tags" prefix="s" %>
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>JSP Page</title>
<s:head/>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Hello World!</h1>
<s:form name="login" action="Login" method="post" validate="true">


<s:textfield name="username" id="username" label="Username : " />
<br></br>

<s:password name="password" id="password" label="Password : " />
<s:submit name="submit" value="Login" />


</s:form>


</body>
</html>



error shown on browser:


FreeMarker template error!



Method public java.util.List org.apache.struts2.components.Form.getValidators(java.lang.String) threw an exception when invoked on org.apache.struts2.components.Form@3d7a5a
The problematic instruction:
----------
==> list tag.getValidators("${tagName}") as validator [on line 46, column 9 in template/xhtml/form-close-validate.ftl]
in include "/${parameters.templateDir}/xhtml/form-close-validate.ftl" [on line 25, column 1 in template/xhtml/form-close.ftl]
----------

Java backtrace for programmers:
----------
