Just a guess, but are you either hot-deploying the application or modifying the code while it is running?
If so, requests coming through while the re-load is in progress can access the site in an intermediate (and unstable) state of loading. I have had Tomcat fail with all sorts of strange classes not found, including some of the core javax.servlet ones.

No I am not hot deploying... While starting the tom,cat itself, I am getting this error and one strange thing is it's coming wjile I am starting the tomcat thru' ecilpse.
For all the context root, this error coming.. for example:
If I am starting the tomcat thru' tomcat\bin>startup ..then I am not getting this error..
But I have given reload = true in the context file and also modifing some codes while running..but this error is not coming at that instance..only when I am starting.. and due to this error coming and starting of tomcat itself, the application is not deploying properly..
