Subject RE: Is it possible to use struts 1.1 with WebSphere 4?
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2003 12:22:25 GMT
Its b3 if I recall rightly. Ill download rc2 and have another shot in the

Just wierd that it works in tomcat but fails in WS. I recall seing something
that said for WS3 you needed to change struts use of
ServletContext.getResourceAsStream() - does that still apply in WS4?

yesterday with the RC2 struts.jar, I can get my app to load and do most
