I said I didn't know what the second error meant (the one i got after i did initialize it). The first error, that you are referring to, i said i didn't know why i was getting it, not i didn't know what it meant. Thanks.
There isn't much info on that error to go by. The most useful piece of info is probably:
The exception is being thrown from line 100 of the javaservlet created on behalf of auth.jsp. Find that java file (Tomcat will have written it to the folder hierarchy under $CATALINA_HOME/work) and see what is going on at line 100.
