javax.servlet.ServletException: Cannot find ActionMappings or ActionFormBeans collection


Here is my index.jsp
<%@ page language="java" %>

}

private String address = null;
public String getAddress() {
return (this.address);
}
public void setAddress(String address) {
this.address = address;
}

/* Sex */
private String sex = null;
public String getSex() {
return (this.sex);
}
public void setSex(String sex) {
this.sex = sex;
}

/* Married status */
private String married = null;
public String getMarried() {
return (this.married);
}
public void setMarried(String married) {
this.married = married;
}

/* Age */
private String age = null;
public String getAge() {
return (this.age);
}
public void setAge(String age) {
this.age = age;
}

}

SubmitAction.java
package hansen.playground;

import javax.servlet.http.*;
import org.apache.struts.action.*;

public final class SubmitAction extends Action {

public ActionForward perform(ActionMapping mapping,
ActionForm form,
HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response) {

SubmitForm f = (SubmitForm) form; // get the form bean
// and take the last name value
String lastName = f.getLastName();
// Translate the name to upper case
//and save it in the request object
request.setAttribute("lastName", lastName.toUpperCase());

// Forward control to the specified success target
return (mapping.findForward("success"));
}
}

Please help with the exception.. Thanks

The error is here. You have commented out the <form-bean> tag

<form-beans>
<!-- sample form bean descriptor for an ActionForm
<form-bean
name="submitForm"
type="hansen.playground.SubmitForm"/>
end sample -->
</form-beans>
