Hello,

I have created struts 1.3.8 application in Netbeans-IDE 6.

When I run that application I got the following error message at run time.


HTTP Status 503 - Servlet action is currently unavailable

type: Status report

message: Servlet action is currently unavailable

description: The requested service (Servlet action is currently unavailable) is not currently available.

Following is the Tomcat server 6.0.20 log file.

Look in your startup logs. I'd say you're missing a library (or libraries) and/or using the wrong version of something.

check once struts-config.xml

- like removing/commenting unused plugins egs:Validator plugin,TilesPlugin
- configured paths
