connecting struts with database

I want to do this, When the user input is processed, it will be checked against the database to see what�s the role associated with the user. If the user is in the �admin� role, it will show �Hello Admin� on the second page.
Using struts and mysql, I've got the jsp,Formbean ,
The problem is: The requested resource (Servlet action is not available) is not available.

part code

<html:form action="/login">
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="0">
<td colspan="2">

<td width="15%">Enter your name:</td>
<td width="85%">
<html:text property="name" size="25" maxlength="50"

Formbean code

public class LoginForm extends org.apache.struts.validator.ValidatorForm{

private String name = null;

private String result ;

public void setName(String name) {
this.name = name;

public String getName() {
return name;

public void setResult(String result) {
this.result = result;

public String getResult() {
return result;


action code
public class DB extends Action {

/* forward name="success" path="" */
private final static String SUCCESS = "success";

public ActionForward execute(ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form,
HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
throws Exception {

//casting a formbean

LoginForm bean =(LoginForm) form ;

//get form parameters
String name = bean.getName();

//get connection from database
javax.sql.DataSource dataSource = null;
java.sql.Connection myConnection;

ServletContext context=servlet.getServletContext();
DataSource datasource;
myConnection = dataSource.getConnection();

PreparedStatement stmt=(PreparedStatement) myConnection.createStatement();

// Execute a query

String query = "SELECT * FROM `role` NATURAL JOIN `user` WHERE username = ?";
ResultSet RS=stmt.executeQuery(query);

// Set values to the parameters

// extract data from the ResultSet
String role = RS.getString(1);
if(role.equalsIgnoreCase("admin")||(role.equalsIgnoreCase("user")) ){
return mapping.findForward(SUCCESS);
return mapping.findForward("fail");


}catch (SQLException sqle) {


return mapping.findForward(SUCCESS);

The problem appears to be that the Struts ActionServlet didn't initialize properly. See this link for more information.

have you specified the DataSource in the struts-config.xml file??
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
