The J2EE reference implementation includes a modified version of Tomcat 3.0.

I haven't tried this, but in principle it should work -- unless there were
Tomcat 3.0 bugs that make it fail.

Tomcat 3.1 also uses the old "xml.jar" parser, and I have successfully run
Struts under 3.1 -- so it should not be a problem.

Did you try just deploying the "struts-example.war" file?  That should also
work, and has struts.jar in the right place (under WEB-INF/lib).
