Try adding a file named under WEB-INF/classes containing the following line:


Also log a bug for this using the trackers, the file should be already there in the war but it's missing for some reason.

It also can be, that you have a second applicationContext.xml file named like "applicationContexWhateverYouWant.xml" (I had it as a backup). I got this error as Spring was looking for "applicationContext*.xml".

If you want to have a backup call it applicationContext.xml.bkp or something like that, but after the file extension ".xml".
