Struts2 validation problems

I'm trying to build a simple Struts2 application which validates user input making sure the user does not input blank username/ pw. The application runs correctly until it comes to the actual validation. If the user enters a blank value the validation is ignored and the SUCCESS action is rendered. It does not even seem to recognize the xml validator (RequiredTestAction-validation.xml).

I'm using Struts2.3.4 library in Netbeans 7.3. I tried to include themain code components for the application. Please let me know if I need to include any more information.

The following excerpt from the stack trace tells me I'm missing a TLD or using the wrong library, but I really don't know where to obtain the missing TLD since I'm using the latest Struts libary for my IDE?

Would really appreciate any advice in case I have not structured or coded this correctly.

Problem solved. The "http://www.opensymphony.com/xwork/xwork-validator-1.0.2.dtd"> is an outdated dtd declaration in the validation xml file. Replacing it with the following fixed the problem:

<!DOCTYPE validators PUBLIC
"-//Apache Struts//XWork Validator 1.0.2//EN"
// code
