Hi Friends,
I am tryin to learn Struts using �Wiley Mastering Jakarta Struts� books..where he states to install Struts and copy these files :
� struts.jar
� commons-beanutils.jar
� commons-collections.jar
� commons-dbcp.jar
� commons-digester.jar
� commons-logging.jar
� commons-pool.jar
� commons-services.jar
� commons-validator.jar

But I cant find the commons-services.jar file anywhere. And I could get these files under tomcat5.0:
Commons-collections3.1.jar
Commons-dbcp1.2.1.jar
commons-pool1.2.jar

please tell me where to find the services file and how to proceed further.
Thanks

burn = figurative. that's the absolute worst book to start struts on. it's out-dated (3 years old! that's like human year to dog year in web development age) w/ poor examples and confusing suggestions based on struts 1.0 + anticipated 1.1beta. clearly from your question, it's already a bad start. i had to re-learn some struts stuff because of it (and that was 2.5 years ago).

a much better book is http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0072231319/johnwilliamwa-20 . else, you're better off following online tutorials (do a quick google search).

I personally like Struts in Action. No, it's not the most up-to-date version of Struts anymore but it's still a decent book.

What version of Struts are you using? You don't need common-services.jar for Struts 1.2
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
