The error message above is generated when starting Tomcat (version 4.0.1).
I do not understand why, I thought that my DD was set up in the correct order.

Note that this code is based on Chap.5 Head First.

You're using pretty old stuff here Are you studying for SCWCD ? If so, you should use version 2.4, not 2.2.

Did you try to remove the carriage return after com.example.MyServletContextListener ?

In fact, I'm looking at the 2.2 spec, and there's no listener tag.
Use 2.4 instead.
