Hi all,
I have written a filter. Also configured in web.xml (i.e wrote filter element and filter-mapping element). When i start the tomcat, i am getting the following error:

INFO: Processing Context configuration file URL file:C:\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.25\conf\Catalina\localhost\fsme.xml
org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext start
SEVERE: Error filterStart
org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext start
SEVERE: Context startup failed due to previous errors

Note: fsme is the name of the project

Can anyone please give an idea to resolve this error

Thanks a lot.

It probably means an exception was thrown when loading the filter. Checking your logs for any stack traces would be your first step.

Thanks a lot Bear Bibeault. It helped me to find out the problem. I did not give the fully qualified class name for the Filter class in web.xml. So, was throwing 'Class No found Exception'. Now fixed it.

Thanks again
