Spring 3.1: BeanDefinitionStoreException on startup

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional
WebLogic 11g
Java 1.6 ( the version with weblogic )
Spring 3.1


I was using WebLogic 11g and Spring 3.1 to do Java Webapp development on a Windows XP Professional PC. All was fine.

Then I had to migrate to a new computer running Windows 7 Professional.

I think I may have missed a step in setting everything up to get it all working again.

My webapp is "ACME", acme.war

When I try to navigate to my webapp on my computer I get the following error:

**weblogic.application.ModuleException: [HTTP:101216]Servlet:
"acme" failed to preload on startup in Web application: "acme.war".
org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanDefinitionStoreException:
Unexpected exception parsing XML document from ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/acme-servlet.xml];
nested exception is java.lang.NoSuchMethodError:
org.springframework.beans.MutablePropertyValues.add
(Ljava/lang/String;Ljava/lang/Object;)Lorg/springframework/beans/MutablePropertyValues;**



Here is a copy of my acme-servlet.xml file:

I have my JAVA_HOME envir variable pointed to
C:\Oracle\Middleware\jdk160_29
( this is withing the weblogic 11g installation )

I have that path in my PATH variable.

My system wide Windows CLASSPATH is just a '.'

Thanks in advance for any ideas

Steve

Looks like you may have multiple versions of some of the spring libraries on the classpath. Do you have them in the WAR and in the lib directory of the appserver? Perhaps there are conflicting versions. The other possibility is you are compiling the code with a newer version of Spring than exists on the class path at runtime.

Someone told me that WebLogic 11g comes with its own set of Spring jars, which were likely conflicting with the Spring jars I had inside of my WAR file.

I couldn't find any WAR files with "spring" in the label. I did see a number of other libraries in the admin page under "Deployments".

I'm not sure what I did, but after re-installing WebLogic 11g the libraries did not get reinstalled and the problem went away.

This is okay with me as the the test and production servers don't include those libraries, so I am probably avoiding further conflicts.

I would still like to know where the Spring libraries were in WebLogic 11g.

I was actually talking about Spring jars packaged inside your applications WAR file. Glad you got it working though, thanks for posting back.
