My spring java-config application packed as war runs wihout problem on weblogic 12.1.3 so I tried to deploy same war into weblogic 12.2.1 where it causes Could not open ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/DispatcherServlet-servlet.xml]. It seems like DispatcherServlet servlet is initialized with XmlWebApplicationContext (default one) instead of AnnotationConfigEmbeddedWebApplicationContext in 12.2.1 even when war is the same. Has someone any idea what was changed in weblogic implementation since previous version what is causing this problem?

Using same war:

in WLS 12.1.3 it is working without issue, application configures using annotations/java
in WLS 12.2.1 the same application looks for xml configuration at some point instead of configuring it using annotations/java as in 12.1.3.
