This means that there is something wrong with the deployment descriptor (web.xml) of your web application. It is not according to the DTD.

Note that in older versions, the elements in the deployment descriptor must be in a specific order, determined by the DTD. If the elements are in the wrong order, then you will get error messages like this.

Lookup the DTD and check if your web.xml is correct.
