Hi. I have a struts 2, hibernate, spring. In struts, I integrate with tiles. Initially I use struts 2.0.8. Now I migrate to use struts 2.1.6. After chaning all the jars, I got following error in starting page. It seems it could not find my definitions. Are there some jars missing or Are there some mis configured parameters? Your help is highly appreciated.

Yes, you are right. Tiles are not correctly loaded. It is because listener is properly configured. I will make another post to give the soluction.
