          Are you sure that class is present in that jar and it's not missing some other jar file(s)?

            Thanks Kiran for the reply,


            Yes i have included the jar in lib folder of the war . The jar is struts.jar, to confirm I have downloaded struts-1.2.7-lib from apache site ( as we are using old version I have downloaded the old version and placed in the lib folder), this is what i get



            Caused by:


            : org.apache.struts.taglib.template.GetTag from [Module "deployment.accessms.war:main" from Service Module Loader]

            at org.jboss.modules.ModuleClassLoader.findClass(




            I have java 1.7 as the jre

            jboss AS7


            The same code works fine with jboss AS 5.1

            I read the Migration document , which says war is treated as separate deployment and jar which are needed are to be placed in /lib folder.


            Please advice.

                You have an obsolete struts tld file embedded in your application somewhere.


                MessageTag lives in package org.apache.struts.taglib.bean in Struts 1.2.

                  Indeed, this was the problem.


                  Thank you very much
