Subject FOLLOWUP: struts-config_1_0.dtd location when not connected to in ternet
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2001 13:48:10 GMT
I finally got back to working this issue. Recall, I was having the trouble
running a struts application using Tomcat 3.2 & JBuilder 4 in debug mode
while disconnected from the internet. 

I resolved this issue by extracting the DTDs from the struts.jar to the
WEB-INF\classes\org\apache\struts\resources directory. These DTD's were in
the struts.jar in my WEB-INF\lib directory, but they weren't found at
runtime. 

Thanks.

No.  The XML parser looks at the public identifier (the part that starts
"-//Apache ..." to see if it has a local copy.  If so, the system
identifier (the URL) is totally ignored.

By the way, servlet containers do this for the web.xml DTD as well, which
is why (for example) you can run Tomcat disconnected from the Internet
without modifying any of your web.xml files.
