Installing Struts with your servlet container
iPlanet Application Server 6.0
Service Pack 2 is recommended.
NOTE: At present, the Struts example application still uses a non-Serializable servlet context attribute, and will not run in an environment that requires them, like iPlanet Application Server.
iPlanet Web Server 4.2
Here are the issues I ran into while moving my struts based application from Tomcat (supports WebApps and WAR) to iWS 4.1 (does NOT support Webapps and WAR).
Webapps and WAR will be supported in iWS 5.0, as mentioned in iWS5.0 roadmap.
This s pretty straightforward. Since there is no notion of
WEB-INF/classes the classpath has to be explicitly set in
Context relative paths
All URLs should be visible from the document root. In my case I just created
a symbolic link from
The config file
$SERVER_ROOT/config/rules.properties has a similar mechanism
as in web.xml.
I have this in my
rules.properties which forwards all urls ending with "do"
to the servlet whose logical name is action.
#### @.*[.]do$=action ####
