I am trying "Spring in Action" chapter4 example

when i am trying to implements BeforeAdvice, it shows following error in eclipse

- The hierarchy of the type AudienceAdvice is inconsistent
- The type org.aopalliance.aop.Advice cannot be resolved. It is indirectly referenced from
required .class files

I have included all libraries of spring-framework-3.0.3.RELEASE and asm-all-3.2.jar,commons-logging-1.1.1.jar.

Could anyone suggest me how to rectify this error in eclipse as i am not able to build.

Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated

You could be missing the aopalliance-1.0.jar file. I don't believe this is directly part of the distribution (at least it wasn't for spring-framework-3.0.0.RELEASE). I've since been building with the STS and the Spring Template Project, which builds out a Maven-based project with all the basic dependencies pre-set in the pom.xml file.

If you need to download the jar file, you should be able to find it at:
