Getting error message with spring "cvc-elt.1: Cannot find the declaration of element 'beans'."

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: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");

Here's my contenxt.xml file:

<bean id="show" class="FirstBean">

</bean>
<bean id="populateFD" class="PopulateFactData">
<constructor-arg value="localhost" />
<constructor-arg value="3309" />
</bean>
</beans>

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.
