The Config Browser is a simple tool to help view your Struts configuration at runtime. It is very useful when debugging problems that could be related to configuration issues.

Installing the Config Browser is a two-step process.

  1. Ensure that the FreeMarker JAR is on the classpath.
  2. Include the config-browser.xml in your {{struts.xml} file
    • <include file="config-browser.xml"/>

Once configured, you can access the tool by opening to the action named index in the config-browser namespace.

In most cases (if you are using the default ActionMapper), the URL is something like http://localhost:8080/starter/config-browser/index.action.
