SEVERE: Error filterStart

My struts.xml file is placed under WEB-INF/classes folder and contains the following content

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE struts PUBLIC
"-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 2.0//EN"
"http://struts.apache.org/dtds/struts-2.0.dtd">

<action name="login"

method="execute">
<result name="success">/Login.jsp</result>
</action>
</package>
</struts>

And the web.xml file is ::

and used the below jar files ::

commons-fileupload-1.3.jar
commons-io-2.0.1.jar
commons-lang3-3.1.jar
commons-logging-1.1.3.jar
freemarker-2.3.19.jar
javassist-3.11.0.GA.jar
ognl-3.0.6.jar
struts2-core-2.3.15.1.jar
xwork-core-2.3.15.1.jar

Any help would be really great as I am struck and had searched almost every part of google to try and find out what exactly is causing this error.
