The server encountered an internal error

Well I'm new in here. Hope you guys be patient with my English because it is a brazilian who speaks.

I'm a beginner. I just downloaded the Spring Framework and I'm having some problems when trying to configure it.

So here we go... When I try to run my jsp page through the browser I have the following error message which I think that may have something wrong with the xml configuration. I can't see nothing wrong with that though.

exception

Is this a complete stack trace? If not post the whole thing. Also what does you web.xml /Spring configuration look like?

Actually there's a little bit more. I will first show configurations I did ... Then I'll finish it by showing the entire error message I'm getting when running.

Right under root cause shows you the important part



Check you web.xml its WEB-INF not WEB/INF it is failing to find your spring-context.xml.

Also for an example of a typical web.xml to bootstrap a Spring project have a look here:
https://github.com/SpringSource/spring-mvc-showcase/blob/master/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml

the root context contains bean definitions that should be shared by all servlets your mvc related stuff goes in the servlet scoped context.
