Hey man,

i am having this error thrown while i am using tomcat 4.1. i m at loss as i have no idea why this error is arising. the jars that i m creating are placed under %TOMCAT_HOME%/common/lib and WEB-INF/lib directories of my web-applications. I am using Eclipse 2.1 and Struts framework. Any help to solve the following error would be a great help..I am badly stuck..

Hi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

This error message generally means you have two different .class files for the named class, and they're not compatible; i.e., a method's return type has changed, or something along those lines. There might be, for example, one copy in a jar file in WEB-INF/lib, and one in WEB-INF/classes. Search carefully, and remove duplicate class files, and your problem should go away.
