Error 500: Unable to load class org....struts...HtmlTag

Hi there,

I'm using Webpshere 5.1:


I'm having the ff. problems:


(1) Error 500: Failed to load target servlet [action] (live)
(2)Error 500: Unable to load class org.apache.struts.taglib.html.HtmlTag


I've tried the following on my local server:

- checked/fixed web.xml and struts-config.xml for any errors
- re-copy struts.jar at WEB-INF\lib folder
- checked sql connections
- re-build, re-deploy, and the project


Please help me to resolve this.

Joanne,

What does "ff" stand for?

This looks like an easier one to start with. If WebSphere can't find Struts classes, it wouldn't be able to load the servlet. Can you confirm your struts.jar in fact has an HtmlTag class? (You can unzip the jar to see what is in it.)

Hi Jeanne,

(1) ff = following [sorry bout that]
(2) Yes, the class is there.

Huhuhuhu
