ExceptionInInitializeError in sevlets

Hi

I have a problem I don't understand:
Let's say I have a Servlet-Class with HttpServlet as it's supertype for
example package.MyServlet.
If I try to run a Servlet containing the code: package.MyServlet.class I
have no problem.
If I try to run my test application containing: package.MyServlet.class
I get an ExceptionInInitializeError the first time and NoClassDefFound's
when I try a second time.

Has this something to do with security or something ?
Thanks for your help

It usually means that an exception is being thrown during the static initialization of the class. Check your logs carefully and inspect any static code you have defined.
