I have troubles getting Tomcat up and running. I have a Tomcat server configured in Eclipse and it configured to my projects document base. But when I start, I see the following error:

Where ad which specific jars that I should add and where?

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4 - Hints for you, SCBCD Hints - Demnachst, SCDJWS - Auch Demnachst
Did a rm -R / to find out that I lost my entire Linux installation!

Tried all what I could, but still not able to get past this error. I actually imported my Maven project into eclipse and followed the normal way to configure a Tomcat server in eclipse. Why is this giving a class not found?

here's the missing classes:
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.springframework.web.util.Log4jConfigListener
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.springframework.web.context.request.RequestContextListener
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.struts2.tiles.StrutsTilesListener

spring framework and struts jar files are missign in tomcat/lib (or WEB-INF/lib)
