    is the exception coming during the application startup OR when accessing some of the pages?

    Try cleaning and re-building the whole application

    check whether the struts-config file definition in web.xml under ActionServlet entry is correct or not? Like following is the entry for struts-config.xml


    struts-config.xml should be there if u placed it under WEB-INF folder.

    the web.xml is configured correctly, placed under WEB-INF. Quite weird because this application is running successfully on Resin. But when I moved it to tomcat, Im getting this error.
