When starting a clean instance of either Tomcat 5.5 or 6.0, with no additional applications, I get the following error message when I attempt to deploy a .war file I just created:
... Error Message: FINE: Configuring application event listeners Mar 12, 2007 2:08:50 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext start SEVERE: Error listenerStart Mar 12, 2007 2:08:50 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext start SEVERE: Context [/bPoints] startup failed due to previous errors Mar 12, 2007 2:08:50 PM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext listenerStop ...
However, I developed this application on 6.0 (using an instance that has worked fine for me for months) and in that, it works fine. I think it might be in the way my jars are being read. I tried to add jars to the 5.5 common lib and 6.0 lib directory of my clean installs (one at a time), but cannot get past the above error message for a successful deploy.
Any advice? It seems there is something unique about the instance of Tomcat 6 I develop with, but I can't determine what.
No there was no additional information in the Catalina.out file � even after adjusting the logging levels. I have solved the problem but the resolution did not answer why the error appeared. I copied the ../WEB-INF/lib directory contents from one working on a Tomcat 5.5 deployment to the one in error. Thus - some jar file corrected the listener error. It is not obvious which file did the trick.
