Every know and again, I get the following error:

There is a work around in that I move my working code changes into a temp directory copy my clean code into the directory then add my changes and then build it. This is annoying in that every time I make a change I have to store them somewhere.<p>You could say get rid of the error code, I do but once I get this error nothing short of adding all the code again seems to clear the problem away.

The error message is always the same and does not seem to mention my code at all, its a tomcat error message.

As I said I have a work around but I would like a hint of what this problem is:

Thanks for any help
