Problem mapping an Action to a namespace

I am trying to get an action in a Struts 2 app to work but I am coming up with this error in my console.  Is there any known fix for this?

There is no Action mapped for namespace /jsp/myApp/screenscrape and action name runEarningsAlerts. - [unknown location]

Check your struts-config.xml file to see that you have something similar to this:

<struts-config>
      <form-beans>
            <form-bean name="searchForm"
                           type="org.SearchForm"/>
      </form-beans>
      <action-mappings>
            <action path="/Search"
                        name="searchForm"
                        type="org.SearchAction" >
                  <forward name="Status" path="/status.jsp"/>
                  <forward name="NotFound" path="/login.jsp"/>
            </action>
      </action-mappings>
</struts-config>

Where type="org.SearchAction" defines your action class

ProgSysAdmin, Thanks for your response but I am using the struts 2  struts.xml format for my configuration.

I'm sorry.  Here is a snippet of Struts 2 struts.xml code that I found which I modified to fit what you are doing.  The main thing in correcting your error "[unknown location]" is in the class="" section of your file needs to be a valid java class.  I hope this helps.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE struts PUBLIC
"-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 2.0//EN"
"http://struts.apache.org/dtds/struts-2.0.dtd">

<struts>

<package name="earningsAlerts" namespace="/jsp/myApp/screenscrape" extends="struts-default">

<action name="runEarningsAlerts" class="jsp.myApp.screenscrape.EarningsAlerts">
<result>/jsp/myApp/screenscrape/EarningsAlerts.jsp</result>
</action>
</package>

</struts>
