This is my Action class, "LoginAction.java"



Compiler error in line 1 in the above class, "The method getDataSource(HttpServletRequest) is undefined for the type LoginAction"

here is my struts-config.xml
----------------------------------



I added the jars, "commons-dbcp-1.4.jar" and "commons-pool-1.4.jar" the the eclipse build path, and /WEB-INF/lib
also to the tomcat(6.0.26)'s /WEB-INF/lib

Can anyone tell me why iam getting this compiler error in line 1 and also how to rectify the same?

Did you look at the Javadocs for Struts 1.3 actions? I'd recommend that you do.

Outside of Struts. People generally use JNDI, Spring, Hibernate, etc.

A simple search, even just here on JavaRanch, would turn things like this up:
