Hi all, I am using struts 1.3.8 in netbeans and common-digester 1.8. I have the digester in the class path but I am getting this error.

Unable to initialize Struts ActionServlet due to an unexpected exception or error thrown, so marking the servlet as unavailable. Most likely, this is due to an incorrect or missing library dependency.
java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.commons.digester.Digester.parse(Ljava/net/URL Ljava/lang/Object;
at org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.parseModuleConfigFile(

I'd suggest you check to see if there is another version of the digester somewhere in your Application Server's classpath. In particular, check common shared directories in the classpath. If you find it, remeove it, as it could be causing this problem.
