NoSuchMethodError when using submitting form in Struts 2



I’m currently working through the tutorial found on the Apache Struts website.

Currently, whenever I press submit on the form, or when I click the Bruce Philips hyperlink, I get a NoSuchMethodError.

javax.servlet.ServletException: Filter execution threw an exception
root cause

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: ognl.SimpleNode.isEvalChain(Lognl/OgnlContext;)Z
    com.opensymphony.xwork2.ognl.OgnlUtil.isEvalExpression(OgnlUtil.java:224)
    com.opensymphony.xwork2.ognl.OgnlUtil.setValue(OgnlUtil.java:215)
    com.opensymphony.xwork2.ognl.OgnlValueStack.trySetValue(OgnlValueStack.java:187)
    com.opensymphony.xwork2.ognl.OgnlValueStack.setValue(OgnlValueStack.java:174)
    com.opensymphony.xwork2.ognl.OgnlValueStack.setParameter(OgnlValueStack.java:152)
        ....

I’m not too sure what the issue is either and I believe I’ve included everything the tutorial states. I’ve tried including the dependency in my pom.xml, but that makes no difference either.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project>
  <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
  <groupId>Struts2PracticeSite</groupId>
  <artifactId>Struts2PracticeSite</artifactId>
    <packaging>war</packaging>
  <version>0.0.1</version>
    <build>
        <finalName>Struts2PracticeSite</finalName>
    </build>
    <dependencies>
    <dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.struts</groupId>
    <artifactId>struts2-core</artifactId>
    <version>2.3.8</version>
</dependency>

<dependency>
    <groupId>log4j</groupId>
    <artifactId>log4j</artifactId>
    <version>1.2.14</version>
</dependency>
</dependencies>
    
    
</project>

Any ideas on how I would fix this problem?

Answer

Problem found… Turns out my server version is too old to handle struts 2. I was previously using Geronimo version 2.0.2, and it now runs fine on GlassFish 3.1.2.
