Hi Anjali,
Not pretty sure, But i feel there is a version problem of the JDKs. Check the version of xerces.jar.

Hello Anjali,

The only thing i can guess, please make sure the very first line in config or web.xml should not be blank. The contents should start with the very first line.

Thanks,
Vivek

Hello, i had the same problem, too and the cause for me were different Java (JRE) versions on the two machines (the developer-machine had 1.6 and the target-machine only 1.5)
Maybe it helps someone...
Good luck
Sybyll

I have seen this error today

reason? I was using websphere and changing class loader strategy to parent last

this means my jars will be loaded first from war and then from lib/ext or whatever websphere gives

I was trying to control commons logging to use log4j



morale of the story?

you need all the jars that your app needs

struts uses - commons digester, lang, bean utils, logging and xerces

dump all and everything in your web-inf /lib

and you are good to go!

Hope this helps
