Greetings All;

Merrill, thanks for answering the last post. My hole is just getting deeper. I am very green to Struts, and I started this with the Jakarta Struts for Dummies Book I brought two years ago, and quickly realized that Struts 1.1 is very much out dated. I tried to use the Dummies Book with the Struts 2�Forget it! So I turned to the Struts 2, where I have read nearly everything regarding the �Getting Started,� and the �Hello World,� tutorial. After finishing the steps to the Hello World tutorial, and I getting the

http://localhost:8080/tutorial/HelloWorld.action
==============================================================
HTTP Status 404 - /tutorial/HelloWorld.action

Message /tutorial/HelloWorld.action

Description The requested resource (/tutorial/HellwWorld.action) is not available.

Now, I don�t have an index.html in the tutorial folder which I think is strange. But I also don�t understand what should build the Java file, outside of using eclipse. Again, I am very green in this, but I can pickup things very quickly. Unfortunately, I have been working on this since yesterday. And, yes I read a lot of other sites tutorial but most start out good, and in up talking about Struts 1.X.

I am currently reading Starting Struts 2 online. Please help if you can.
