I'm trying to set up a simple spring application and I'm getting the following exception:

Exception in thread "main" org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanDefinitionStoreException: Line 2 in XML document from class path resource [context.xml] is invalid; nested exception is org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element 'beans'.
org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element 'beans'.
      at com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.util.ErrorHandlerWrapper.createSAXParseException(ErrorHandlerWrapper.java:195)
      at com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.util.ErrorHandlerWrapper.error(ErrorHandlerWrapper.java:131)
      at com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.impl.XMLErrorReporter.reportError(XMLErrorReporter.java:384)
      at com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.impl.XMLErrorReporter.reportError(XMLErrorReporter.java:318)

Here's the my initial code:

public static void main(String[] args) {
		
		try {
			
			BeanFactory beanfactory = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext(
			        "context.xml");
			
			
			FirstBean bean = (FirstBean) beanfactory.getBean("show");

Open in new window


Here's my contenxt.xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans" 
 xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
 xmlns:aop="http://www.springframework.org/schema/aop"
 xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-3.0.xsd">
<bean id="anotherBean" class="AnotherBean" />
<bean id="show" class="FirstBean">
<constructor-arg ref="anotherBean" />
</bean>
<bean id="populateFD" class="PopulateFactData">
<constructor-arg value="localhost" />
<constructor-arg value="3309" />
</bean>
</beans>

Open in new window


I'm trying to run this program standalone in eclipse indigo.

It was a jar/classpath issue. I was using a small set of spring jars that came with a tutorial. After I downloaded the full package from springsource and added those jars into my buildpath, the error went away.
