It is showing the exception ClassNotFoundException. and the class which was not found is ActionServlet.

I tried one example from the web by deployinying the war flie in tomcat it worked smmothly.but when i configured it according to my application it again show me the same Exception.

I am not able to point out what might be the cause of the Exception

AnyHelp in this regard is much appriciated.
