Hi , i have written a small application using Spring framework, i am getting the following error while parsing the springapp-servlet.xml,

<Apr 7, 2006 3:26:02 PM IST> <Error> <HTTP> <BEA-101216> <Servlet: "springapp" f
ailed to preload on startup in Web application: "springapp".
javax.servlet.ServletException: Error registering bean with name 'springappContr
oller' defined in ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/springapp-servlet.xml]: Bean
 class [com.SpringappController] not found; nested exception is java.lang.ClassN
otFoundException: com.SpringappController


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
springapp-servlet.xml :-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE beans PUBLIC "-//SPRING//DTD BEAN//EN" "http://www.springframework.org/dtd/spring-beans.dtd"><!--  - Application context definition for "springapp" DispatcherServlet.  -->
<beans>
      <bean id="springappController" class="com.SpringappController" />
      <bean id="urlMapping"
            class="org.springframework.web.servlet.handler.SimpleUrlHandlerMapping">
            <property name="mappings">
                  <props>
                        <prop key="/hello.htm">springappController</prop>
                  </props>
            </property>
      </bean>
</beans>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

this is the controller code,

package com;
import org.springframework.web.servlet.mvc.Controller;
import org.springframework.web.servlet.ModelAndView;
import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;
import java.io.IOException;
import org.apache.commons.logging.Log;
import org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory;

public class SpringappController implements Controller
{
      /** Logger for this class and subclasses */
      protected final Log logger = LogFactory.getLog(getClass());

      public ModelAndView handleRequest(HttpServletRequest request,
                  HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException
      {
            logger.info("SpringappController - returning hello view");

            return new ModelAndView("hello.jsp");
      }
}


i have placed com package in the classes folder and springapp-servlet.xml in the WEB-INF folder.

I need urgent help.

looks ok, there should be a file

WEB-INF/classes/com/SpringappController.class

are all the spring and other required jars in WEB-INF/lib

javaoptimizerAuthor Commented:
yes , the path is right, i have placed spring.jar and also the logging jars in the WEB-INF/lib folder.
any other jar related to spring is needed.

yes, you can download the dependencise here:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=73357&package_id=73406&release_id=396613

check your logs, there may well be more details or earlier statup errors there.

Hi objects,

i deployed the same war in the tomcat server, its working fine, i dont know what went wrong in weblogic.

Spring is supported in Weblogic 8.1 or not.

I need to know the problem, since the app server to be used is web logic.
