The error message occurs when i don't make any selection from the drop down menu and press Submit Button.

This is a Strut Action.
whats the action?
Check in your HTML.
How did you declared the form in HTML?
By struts tag or by pure html tag?
If you declared by struts tag then you need to tell me the version of struts you are using.

Before struts 1.1 you can set attribute action="/hallo" and you miss this "/"
After struts 1.1 you should set your action in struts configuration file .
