Guys,

I have some problems with my Tomcat startup especially when I have my app deployed. Following is what I see.



Any suggestions on what the issue could be?

Well, I don't like a context name of "[]". It should be something like "/" or "/myapp". Maybe you deployed an app with context name = ""?

I can check that, but what has that got to do with the exception that I get here with respect to the MySQL driver? Any ideas?

When I have an error coming from a bad app, the first thing I do is find out what's wrong with the app. Fixing that often fixes the other errors.

Do I specify my context name in the context.xml of Tomcat?

http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-6.0-doc/config/context.html

And ignore what it says about server.xml. Someone needs to update that.

Typical usage:

did you mean that I have to create a context.xml for my web app and place it under META-INF of my web app?

You can do that. Or you can create a file with a Tomcat Context in it and place it in TOMCAT_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost. Since there can be multiple contexts in there, obviously they can't all be named "context.xm", but any file with an ".xml" suffix will be scanned by Tomcat and the name of the file doesn't have to match the context. Although it makes life easier if they do match.
