<set-property property="driverClassName" value="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"/>
<set-property property="url" value="jdbc:mysql://localhost/employees"/>
<set-property property="username" value="root"/>
<set-property property="password" value="root"></set-property>

<form-bean name="employeeForm" type="com.wrox.EmployeeForm" />

<forward name="employeelist" path="/EmployeeList"/>


<action path="/EmployeeList"
<forward name="success" path="/employeelist.jsp"/>

<action path="/Add"

Your struts-config seems to be fine by me.
It would be more helpful to identify the problem if you could post the URL you try to access and the exception stack trace that comes up on the Tomcat console.
