Howdy,

I have a war file that I can deploy locally on Tomcat 5.0.28 using the java 1.5. When I execute my build.xml in Eclipse and start Tomcat from the command prompt on Windows, everything works fine. However, for debugging purposes I download the Tomcat plugin for Eclipse(3.2) and I follow the same deployment steps (i.e., same build file, same source, etc.) except for starting Tomcat using the plugin instead of the command line. Anyway, I get a java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError com.a.b.c.xxxActionServlet.initialize(xxxActionServlet.java:75)

The Tomcat base has been configured correctly in Eclipse, but I can't figure why it blows-up when being started from the IDE. I'm at the point where I'm now just chasing my tail trying to make changes to resolve this issue.

Thanks

Thanks Nick. The main issue that I'm having is that one of the smaller systems has already been converted, which itself was considered sort-of a POC. This is the system that uses Struts and the basic MVC pattern. So the question is: can this thing scale vertically & horizontally and can you enforce coding standards across multiple development teams to keep the code base from turning into a blotted cornicopia of what MVC should be. With that being said, I guess Spring doesn't really offer much more than Struts/MVC in terms of how the code base is maintained and expanded. But, hands down, Spring would be the best solution for testing and code refactoring.
Howdy Hi,

I've been asked to provide a framework reccommendation for an application re-write that was completed in-house last year. The app was built as sort of a proof-of-concept (POC) that is aiming to be the "go forward" framework/standard for all future development, which is as follows:
26 individual voice-related platforms to be converted
All will have web-service interfaces and DB back-ends
Future DBs to be Oracle 10g
Multiple internal development teams around the US
Remaining platforms require 10 X the throughput/capacity of the POC platform

The POC framework/architecture is Struts 1.1 on Tomcat 5.0 - just real basic MVC. I think this is great because I HATE EJBs and all of the un-necessary complexity that it brings. However, can such a simple model be scaled to the Nth. degree while maintaining its simplistic structure (the war file already contains 871 classes - and this is just the POC)? I tend not to think so. I'm new here and I haven't had to time to code in the environment or roll-out updates to the environment so I'm somewhat in the dark in terms of being able to critique the existing architecture, but I've also never used Spring before so I'm really in a "weird" situation.

Please weigh-in, I just need some new thoughts and some different persectives either way.

Thanks
