Hi Whenever i Add the global-exception handler to struts-config.xml,the application deployment gives a parsing exception.Though the application seems to be working normal i would like to know why that parsing exception is thrown

I have the following declaration in struts-config.xml
<global-exceptions>
    <exception
      key="qams.exception"
      type="java.lang.Exception"
      handler="com.qas.exceptions.QAMSExceptionHandler"/>
</global-exceptions>

The exception thrown during deployment of application is(the first few lines only)

[ERROR] Digester - -Parse Error at line 701 column 17: The content of element type "struts-config" must match "(data-sources?,form-beans?,global-exceptions?,global-forwards?,action-mappings?,controller?,message-resources*,plug-in*)". <org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The content of element type "struts-config" must match "(data-sources?,form-beans?,global-exceptions?,global-forwards?,action-mappings?,controller?,message-resources*,plug-in*)".>org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The

Does it appear in the correct place in your struts-config?

After form-beans and before global-forwards (or before action-mappings if you have no global-forwards)

To empahsize, the contents of the struts-config must appear in the correct order:

data-sources?,
form-beans?,
global-exceptions?,
global-forwards?,
action-mappings?,
controller?,
message-resources*,
plug-in*

(? means an item appears 0 or once, * means it can appear any number of times - including 0)

Hi,
  That worked.
   But is there any documentation which mentions that.I wasnt aware of that there were some ordering of elements in struts-config.Can you specify the URL of the document.

Sure... you should have a DOCTYPE in your struts-config.xml, as below:

<!DOCTYPE struts-config PUBLIC
          "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 1.1//EN"
          "http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/dtds/struts-config_1_1.dtd">


The struts-config.xml must conform to the specification given in the dtd file:
http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/dtds/struts-config_1_1.dtd

This is common for XML files, and is worth learning about (a decent XML editor would automatically download the mentioned DTD and highlight any errors for you...)
