Tomcat fail when a war file is extracted to web apps

once i start the tomcat it will give error messages as follows. I still could not figure it the reason. i have set the class paths as well.

But the server is running and it is capable of running simple JSPs
The problem comes when the struts war file is extracted to the web apps. Then the server will vanish forever raising the following error.

can some body please let me know why?

tomcat apparently can't find this class: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/servlet/http/HttpServlet

and this class sits in the servlet.jar (or servlet-api.jar), so take a look of this jar is in %TOMCAT_HOME%/common/lib. If it isn't, add this jar to this directory and try again

Good luck
