Hello guys..!
I'm a newbie to struts, just learning it from the beginning..!

my question is,

" <package name="someName" extends="struts-default"> tag is a must part in Struts.xml or not...?
If yes then tell me what is the reason or necessity behind that..? "

I know my question is very silly. But please post me the reply soon...!

You can look at the XML DTD and determine if it is required or not.
The purpose of the tag is to allow the user to create "packages" out of Struts web contexts, similar to how Java packages work. See this article.
