I have two projects : SpringProj and StrutsProj configured in the same workspace from my eclipse helios.
Scenary: The project StrutsProj recognizes the SpringProj because I had configured it in eclipse classpath. But, when I start my Tomcat the error appear to me: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener
Alternative resolution: put all the libs from "SpringProj/lib" to "StrutsProj/Web-INF/lib" and only restart the tomcat .... its OK works!!!
But I wish have 2 projects: One for spring classes and other for my struts views actions (2 projects separateds);
Note 1 : I already try to add the SpringProj project in bootstrap of eclipse tomcat server configuration (Tomcat v7.0 Server at localhost > Open Lauch configuration > classpath > Bootstrap entries), but I did not have success... The errors continues the same : java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener ...
Note 2: I do not wish generate the jar, for exemple, SpringProj.jar and put it on the StrutsProj/Web-INF/lib.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
