Again, the problem is that you're using tutorials that were written for Struts 1.1. The name and type attributes of the <html:form> tag are no longer valid. Since you've already defined which form Name and form type are associated with the action path in the struts-config.xml file, there's no need to redefine them in the JSP. Just specify the action attribute of an <html:form> tag and Struts will find the rest in the config file.
Thanks Merrill again. I like your approach of " learn by example " I want to look into the struts-examples.war as you said.But I am not able to find the said war file in the installation directory of struts-1.3.5-all

The full name of the file is struts-examples-1.3.5.war and it's in the /apps directory.
