Hello All,

I am fairly new to Spring and hence this question. When I deploy the existing spring applcation to a tomcat web server, I get the following exception:



The following is a snippet from the applicationContext.xml.



Can someone please point me in the right direction to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Never mind. I resolved this issue. I have a spring.schemas file in the META-INF folder within the spring.jar
That file has an entry



I changed my application context file from


to

since the spring.schemas file has a mapping for spring-beans.xsd and not for spring-beans.xsd.

It seems to work fine now.
