can not find org.apache.struts eventhough application has struts.jar file included

I have copied working version of java application war file onto server, it complains saying 'org.apache.struts' can not be found eventhough application has struts.jar included in it. It is working fine in development evironment. The link from one jsp page to another jsp page works fine but it does not reconganize .do in the url. action and .do is specified in web.xml file. It displays in the log file saying 'Creating Action Instance for the defined Action' and no errors.

Any idea as what's wrong??? Please let me know.
Thanks,

you need to keep struts.jar in WEB-INF/lib and also check whether any other struts.jar is there in the classpath of other version.

You might need to put those struts jars into the container's lib directory too. In Tomcat that would be $CATALINA_HOME/lib

Hello,
I copied struts.jar file into $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib directory. It works if I go from one jsp to another. As soon as it has to go to action class I mean .do in url, it hangs up and  here is the entry from log files:
Processing a GET for /anySpeakerSearch
2008-06-18 17:11:58 action:  Looking for ActionForm bean under attribute 'clientForm'
2008-06-18 17:11:58 action:  Creating new ActionForm instance of class 'ca.gc.csc.sb.form.Client'
2008-06-18 17:11:58 action:  Storing instance under attribute 'clientForm' in scope 'request'
2008-06-18 17:11:58 action:  Populating bean properties from this request
2008-06-18 17:11:58 action:  Validating input form properties
2008-06-18 17:11:58 action:  Looking for Action instance for class ca.gc.csc.sb.action.AnySpeakerSearchAction

Well that's not a jar/classloading issue i don't think

What log is that you're looking at btw?

WEB-INF/lib/struts.jar is there in the file listings and I also added in $CATALINA_HOME/common/lib directory.

I am looking into localhost_logs under $CATALINA_HOME/logs directory and there is no errors in catalina.out file.

CEHJCommented:
Well the original issue has been cleared up: as you can see from your log, the struts classes *have* been loaded

CEHJ:

I can see from logs that it is creating new Action instance and why the url with .do not working and displaying anything on the page eventhough same code and same url works fine in development. I am still having the same issue.
