    I have a newbe question regarding the use of stuts in a J2EE project.

    I have developed a small struts project as described in the tutorials, and have a nice struts-config.xml and a generated web.xml. It works fine.

    Now I want to add the capability of using ejb references to a simple accompanying EJB project. My question is how can I add the ejb-ref elements to the default struts web.xml? I would like to use XDoclet, but if I use the deploymentdescriptor Xdoclet subtask, it replaces the action servlet info in the default struts web.xml.

    This question would also apply to other changes I might want to make to web.xml, for example adding servlet mapping elements etc.

    any help appreciated,


    ps I’m using eclipse 3.0.1, jboss 3.2.5, myeclipse 3.8.2

    Great question. Unfortunately, I’m not an expert on using Struts with XDoclet and EJB generation, so I snooped around and found a tutorial on DevX that looks like it will be helpful to you. It’s available here:

    It’s not based on MyEclipse, but it is Eclipse based so it should be similar to what you need. Can anyone else provide any insights?

    thanks thanks for the pointer Scott. The article implies the solution of splitting the web.xml generated by MyEclipse-struts into a merge directory prior to running xdoclet tasks. This works well.

    I image I could use the ‘strutsconfigxml’ XDoclet subtask instead, but when I run it I get an error:

    BUILD FAILED: C:\eclipse3-0-1\eclipse\workspace\TrainingTest\xdoclet-build.xml:32: Can’t create a strutsconfigxml element under webdoclet. Make sure the jar file containing the corresponding subtask class is on the classpath specified in the <taskdef> that defined {2}.

    I’ve seen this error mentioned once or twice but never found a solution… I have the xdoclet jar on the build path for the project. Anyone have an idea?
