I am getting a really strange behaviour when using the struts validator. Infact I am beginning to wonder whether it´s just me going nuts! It´s an error that makes no sense to me at all!

Here´s the scenario:

{{{ 1. Start tomcat

  1. open browser
  2. go to form in html page
  3. send }}}

Now the strange thing is that every second time (after closing the 2 of course) I carry out the steps described above I get a

"java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org.apache.struts.validator.ValidatorForm"

error! Why not every time or even never?! It just doesn´t make sense t o me that this error comes in exactly the interval as described above. Has anybody else experienced a similar problem which might be worth sharing?

I know it sounds silly but that is exactly what is happening!


It seems that this is a session issue and the solution was to change the context in the tomcat server.xml:

I.e. I added:

<Manager className="org.apache.catalina.session.PersistentManager" {{{ debug="4"


to my Context.
