hop of those help? when struts reads in the file it is only parsing it and loading the action definitions. The only errors you will get are XML parsing errors.

In a Struts Action, can I write out a byte array as well as redirect the page? (Struts 1, Java)
hope this fix your issue For some systems where connection to the outside world is restricted by firewall or the site is temporary unavailable you can modify the location of DTD in the DOCTYPE declaration. You can extract DTD from the one of the core jars and place it for example under WEB-INF/dtds and modify DOCTYPE declaration in the following way
<!DOCTYPE struts PUBLIC
"-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 2.3//EN"
How to modify the paths in struts-dojo and/or struts-jquery (Struts 22.214.171.124)?
I hope this helps . We no more require the struts 1 tags. Remove these tags for your jsp pages and also remove the .tld files (struts-html, struts-logic,struts-bean) from the folder you have placed in workspace.
