Tomcat Startup Issues

I am having problems getting Tomcat 4.1 to start. I had been using Struts 1.1 and have successfully configured the Tomcat server to handle the DataSource connection pooling in the server.xml file. Unfortunately one of my coworkers has a strong desire to use the validwhen function of the more recent struts package. I installed the nightly build of Struts and I keep getting this message.

I am running Tomcat 4.1. Struts nightly build and am using Oracle's Database drivers. All of this works fine in 1.1. I guess I have two questions then, one does anyone know how to fix this error and if not can I load the validator-rules from new struts package so it can be used.
Thanks in advance

Nothing is obvious to the uninformed.
I agree. Here's the link:
