OK. I get that you're confused because of the imports that do not have struts packages. Those imports are from the apache commons project (formerly known as the Jakarta commons). The apache commons is a huge library that consists of LOTS of utility JARs. Struts core typically needs commons-beanutils, commons-chain and commons-validator (coomons-fileupload is optional). For the list of all the commons sub project in the apache commons project you can check here. For the list of dependencies of struts 1.3.8, you can check here.
