Reason was that there was an old jar still laying around in the Target directory: Spring.2.03.jar. No idea where this came from. I never used this version of Spring.
Usually stuff like that happens from a third party jar file that has a dependency in their pom that points to that jar. Then you have to have an <exclude> in your pom for the <dependency> of the third party jar.
