Here is my struts config and web.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>
<!DOCTYPE struts-config PUBLIC
"-//Apache software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 1.0//EN"
"http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/dtds/struts-config_1_0.dtd">;

<struts-config>

<form-beans>
<form-bean name="selectBeerForm"
type="com.example.web.BeerSelectForm" />
</form-beans>

<action-mappings>

<action path="/SelectBeer"
type="com.example.web.BeerSelectAction"
name="selectBeerForm"
scope="request"
validate="true"
input="/form.jsp">

<forward name="show_results" path="/result.jsp" />

</action>

</action-mappings>


</struts-config>


<web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee";
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance";
xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_4.xsd";
version="2.4">
<servlet>
<servlet-name>FrontController</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet</servlet-class>
<init-param>
<param-name>config</param-name>
<param-value>/WEB-INF/struts-config.xml</param-value>
</init-param>
<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>

<servlet-name>FrontController</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>*.do</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
</web-app>

I can not understand where is the action servlet failing to load on startup. I have made sure the three struts jar files as mentioned on page 744 are in lib directory.

Did anyone else get the same error ? I searched on google and javaranch but could not find exact match for the answer.

Thanks

Rohit Raj
