Hi:

I'm a newbie to the world of Java and the Spring Tool Suite.
I've inherited ownership of a web-based java project with a javascript/html front-end.

I've got STS installed successfully.
I've also taken the existing project and added it to the STS workspace.
I've cleaned up a bunch of Library reference errors.
I'm now down to 1 error.

I see an error in applicationContext-security.xml
Error occured processing XML 'javax/servlet/Filter'. See Error log for more details.
The classes from the spring-security-web jar (or one of its dependencies) are not available.
You need these to use <http>: javax.servlet.Filter.

Open in new window


I see the following errors in the Error Log:

OK. I THINK I've fixed this?
I'm not sure if this is going to actually run, but at least I resolved this issue.

I found the following blurb and followed the instructions:

 You are missing servlet-api.jar in your class path. Check it
UPDATED
1) Right click on project
2) Got to java build path
3) Click on add library in right hand side.
4) Choose server run time.
5) Click next and select your tom cat server.
6) Click on finish.
