java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError upon deployment of web app with AXIS


I am planning to use AXIS for our web services requirement.  I followed the Apache documentation on how to incorporate the AXIS over an existing web application by simply modifying the web.xml and incorporating the required AXIS jar files.  But, when I tried restarting my web app with the AXIS already included, I got this error "java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError:  org.apache.commons.discovery.DiscoveryException: No implementation defined for org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory" upon start up.

I am using ATG Dynamo 5.6.1 which runs its default web server (Serverina).

Is there anyone who have encountered the same error (even in other app servers) ?

your're missing the properties file for the logging module, see

I was just able to solve this error, and it was not due to the missing properties file.  I just need to include all the required AXIS jar files on the Dynamo classpath.  At first, I just place all those jar files under WEB-INF folder.  That worked for my Sun ONE installation but not for Dynamo.

Anyway, thanks ahoffman.  I actually encoutered another problem, but I guess I'll just post it on a separate thread.
