Hi !
I am using tomcat 6 and am having huge delay in server startup under the debug mode (time>200 seconds).
My application uses spring based services built around hibernate. During startup, it just stops at :
INFO: Initializing Spring root WebApplicationContext

Even after increasing log verbosity, there was no apparent reason for this delay.
I have tried to increase the heap space and have run it offline (without database connectivity) but without any success.
The application is added to the tomcat context via configuration file in the conf folder.

If I try to run this normally via run mode, it starts normally around 30 seconds.

However, this problem does not happen during every server startup.
Following are my VM parameters:
-Xms512m -Xmx512m -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC
