Subject META-INF directory stops Convention plugin working
Date Wed, 23 Sep 2009 15:52:23 GMT
Hi there

I'm trying to get started with Struts2 in particular the Convention plugin.

I've copied the code in the User guide and it works fine but only if I DON'T
have a META-INF directory in my War file, even if that directory is empty.
We are using Maven to build the War so the META-INF directory is always

I'm using Jetty 6.1.11, Struts2 2.1.6.

I have no struts.xml file. All I have in web.xml is:


The error I get on startup is

java.lang.Exception: Could not load WEB-INF/classes/john/action/Hello.class

Anyone know what is going on here?

Thanks in advance
