Extract the zip file using some extractor like WinRAR, 7-Zip, PeaZip or anyone of your choice to a location.

Open the lib directory and you will observe some jar files in it which are essential for the Struts Application Development. 

Copy those jar files in to the lib directory of your application folder which is situated in the webapps folder of your Apache Tomcat.
