     This is a blank Struts configuration file with an example

     Struts Validator is configured using the factory defaults
     and is ready-to-use.

     NOTE: If you have a generator tool to create the corresponding Java
classes
     for you, you could include the details in the "form-bean" declarations.
     Otherwise, you would only define the "form-bean" element itself, with
the
     corresponding "name" and "type" attributes, as shown here.

I am not sure if tiles is being intialized properly this is all i get in
tomcat console regarding tiles

Jan 8, 2013 10:24:11 PM org.apache.struts.tiles.TilesPlugin
initDefinitionsFactory
INFO: Tiles definition factory loaded for module ''.

I guess something more should appear right ?

 on accessing the application a forward action throws the following
exception

WARNING: Unhandled exception
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Path search.page does not start with a
"/" character
at
org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationContext.getRequestDispatcher(ApplicationContext.java:431)


Have I missed something please help
