Question on loading applicationContext

I am currently trying to implement Spring MVC inorder to test a service.

I have a implemented a Controller, I inject an serviceClass, via one of the methods in the service class I create a bean factory and using which I call other services.
I deploy the project in Tomcat (applicationContext.xml is in WEB-INF). type in the url. The controller calls the service class, but when the service class is creating a factory the console throws this

802 INFO 42531[http-8080-exec-4] - org.springframework.beans.factory.xml.XmlBeanDefinitionReader.loadBeanDefinitions( - Loading XML bean definitions from file [C:\WINDOWS\applicationContext.xml]

and throws a stack trace.

applicationContext.xml is in the WEB-INF folder, why is it looking into C:\WINDOWS\applicationContext.xml?

Solved it,
Created a new folder beans, added my applicationContext.xml to it and added the bean folder to the classpath. I was able to call my services without a glitch.
I agree. Here's the link:
