I think there is a little mistake in your JSP and struts-config.xml
Your Error Message shows that:
 javax.servlet.ServletException: Cannot retrieve mapping for action /login

Your Form tag is:
<html:form action="login.do" focus="userName">

Your Action mapping shows:
         <action     path="/Login"
                    type="dummies.struts.LoginAction" .......................

Which means that the struts is looking for /login path in your struts-config.xml file.
However, your struts-config.xml file contains path="/Login" and at this point it fails to map.

Please try to change <html:form action="Login.do" focus="userName"> in your JSP. or you can change struts-config.xml file.
