Subject RE: Rest plugin doesn't find actions
Date Tue, 16 Sep 2008 15:33:08 GMT


in resources/struts-plugin.xml
try disabling the controllerScanning e.g. 
also try to disable the bypass Action Scan e.g.

    <constant name="struts.configuration.classpath.disableActionScanning" value="false"
    <constant name="" value="true" />

do you still miss the action classes?
