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
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
