The problem in this case is that you have the wrong DOCTYPE 
declaration,  If your XML files carry the correct PUBLIC identifier, 
then Struts will find the DTD for validation in the JAR.

For Struts 1.2.x, that would be:

      <!DOCTYPE struts-config PUBLIC
        "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 1.2//EN"
