Way to Struts 1.2 DataSource


Today I had downloaded struts 1.2.7 and tried to write an application. (I know I am selecting a bit old.) I configured the datasource in struts. Alas. When I tried to start my server, tomcat 6.0, I got the error saying "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.commons.dbcp.BasicDataSource". With Googling I found struts-legacy.jar need to downloaded and copied to lib folder of Tomcat. (I couldnt get the recent version of struts-legacy. I found something in archive). Happily restarted the server. I saw java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/pool/impl/GenericObjectPool.. oof.. again I need to download commons-dbcp-1.2.2.jar and commons-pool.jar.

My search come to an end 🙂 It is working fine now.
