I have created a webapp and trying to run the same in tomcat server. When I try to run the project, I get HTTP Status 404, and the following error in tomcat console:

I have used the following jar's , which I presume would suffice. Still I am unsure why I get this error. Any help is appreciated:

First, ensure that those JAR's are actually in your webapps WEB-INF/lib directory when the webapp gets deployed in Tomcat. By looking at the logs they would need to be present in the following directory...
D:\ielect_sw\ws_workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.wst.server.core\tmp1\wtpwebapps\BataMeServices\WEB-INF\lib

Secondly, there are way too many versions of some of those JAR's that you are using. eg. you have 4 different versions of spring-web, and there are others there too. This may or may not be the source of your errors, but you should fix it anyway, as it is highly likely to cause you a problem at some point.

Lastly, the "servlet-api" jars are being included in your webapp hence you get the message on line 43 of the tomcat logs. While not causing an error, it's still a good idea to resolve this. Now these JAR's are required in order to "compile" your app but should not be included in your app when you deploy it. Tomcat provides it's own versions. If you are using Maven, then you should set the <scope> of these dependencies to "provided" so that they don't get included in your app.
