Spring Hello World Error

Hey all, I'm a little green with Spring and having trouble getting everything set up for now. I'm working in Eclipse and created a plan old java project and followed this Hello World Example/Tutorial.

Everything in my code appears to be fine (copy pasted). I downloaded a spring framework zip and imported the jar files in to the folder and created the project and xml files.

If I try to run the main as an application in eclipse I get this error:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory at org.springframework.core.CollectionFactory.<clinit>(

This is the line it traces back too.

Thanks for your help.

Do you have the commons-logging jar?

If you have downloaded Spring with full dependencies, you should have a folder called "lib" in your zip file. The Commons Logging library is in \jakarta-commons\commons-logging.jar.
