Hi there ,
I have a Struts2 Hello World application in Eclipse JUNO for EE developers which is giving this weird exception when I try to deploy it on Tomcat7.
Here is the exception :



1. If I remove the entry from the web.xml file , the application gets deployed but does not open the HelloWorld.jsp page.
2. I read somewhere to make the value of devMode to false but even it didn't help.
3. I tried using as filter class but even it did not help.

Please help .

Looks like you are missing a dependency. What version of Struts are you using and what is in your WEB-INF/lib directory?
