I have been battling with Struts since yesterday and I've deprived myself of sleep. Its now morning and the sun is shining but my problem persists.

How do you configure Apache Tomcat 5.5.9 to use Struts 1.2.9?

I have downloaded the zip, no jar files, everything in the folder is in XML format. Can someone put me out my ~@#;'#;

The Struts binary download contains several war files in its webapps directory. For starters, put struts-documentation.war and struts-examples.war in the webapps directory of your Tomcat installation. Tomcat should then unpack those automatically, after which you can access http://localhost:8080/struts-documentation and http://localhost:8080/struts-examples.

The download also contains the Struts jar files in the "lib" directory; which file did you download? Be sure to grab the binary version, not the source version.

If you use an IDE such as MyEclipse or NetBeans, check the documentation -- there is a wizard that will automatically set up a Struts application with everything in place.

If you're not using an IDE, unpack the struts-blank.war file that comes with the struts download and use that as a template for your application.

Once you're ready to deploy, it's just a matter of re-packing the war file and moving it to the appropriate directory in Tomcat.

Thanks for your responses, I was finally able to fix it. I want to learn more about Struts, do you know any book that might be of help?
