I am having problem getting the bean reference (which is in jar file) in JSP.
Everything works fine when I am running from RAD Locally but when I am porting to UNIX box test server it fails to get bean reference.

I am trying to get reference of bean/java class which is in the jar file from JSP page.
Error is - Unable to return specified BeanFactory instance: factory key [my-factory], from group with resource name [classpath*:beanRefFactory.xml]; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.NoSuchBeanDefini tionException: No bean named 'my-Bean' is define


JSP calling methodA() of class Test which is in the jar file.
Code in JSP
BeanFactoryLocator beanFactoryLocator = SingletonBeanFactoryLocator.getInstance();
BeanFactoryReference beanFactoryReference = beanFactoryLocator.useBeanFactory("my-factory"); //*** HERE IS ERROR
bean = beanFactoryReference.getFactory().getBean("my-Bean");
catch(Throwable throwable)
System.out.println("\n\nProbem initializing BeanFactory : " + throwable.getMessage());

And structure of jar file which is in WEB-INF/lib

My beanRefFactory looks like this.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE beans PUBLIC "-//SPRING//DTD BEAN//EN" "http://www.springframework.org/dtd/spring-beans.dtd">

<bean id="my-factory" class="org.springframework.context.support.ClassPa thXmlApplicationContext" lazy-init="true">

applicationContext is simlple bean definition with bean name as "my-Bean".

Even, I made following entry in web.xml(differenct different scenario/configuration)

<param-value>classpath*:/myconfig/applicationContext.xml myconfig/applicationContext.xml</param-value>

<param-value>classpath*:/beanRefContext.xml beanRefContext.xml</param-value>

<servlet-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoade rServlet</servlet-class>
<listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoade rListener</listener-class>

Any help will be highly appreciated, I want to resolve this error.

Where is the directory "myconfig". It must be somewhere in the classpath. If you're using a web application, a good bet is under the "classes" directory.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
