Default chapter 18 webwork example not working

ok - I'm just trying to follow the example this time. I found and downloaded webwork 1.4 so I could follow the example, Im running Tomcat 5.5 - I added the webwork-skeleton through tomcat admin, and got to the index when it was added. When I clicked the Form Test link, I get...

HTTP Status 500 -


type Exception report


description The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.


javax.servlet.ServletException: Servlet execution threw an exception

root cause

    org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoader.loadC lass(WebappClassLoader.java:1221)

note The full stack trace of the root cause is available in the Apache Tomcat/5.5.9 logs.


Apache Tomcat/5.5.9

someone please help - I'm trying this because I can't get a custom java class working (say's its undefined even though it's packaged and "warred" properly)

Hi resolutions,

I had the same problem as you do with chapter 18 examples in Tomcat.
I did open the application in netBeans, and it works great. You have to import the application to make it work, if you go to help, tutorials, project import guide, it will guide you how to do it, it's pretty easy.

Good luck!
