I am a newbie to Spring Security and am getting the following error when starting TomCat:

SEVERE: Exception starting filter Acegi Filter Chain Proxy
javax.servlet.ServletException: targetBean 'filterChainProxy' not found in context at org.acegisecurity.util.FilterToBeanProxy.doInit(Fi

Here is my config in web.xml:
<filter-name>Acegi Filter Chain Proxy</filter-name>

<filter-name>Acegi Filter Chain Proxy</filter-name>

And my security.xml:
<bean id="filterChainProxy"
<property name="filterInvocationDefinitionSource">
PATTERN_TYPE_APACHE_ANT /**=httpSessionContextIntegrationFilter,
exceptionTranslationFilter,filterSecurityIntercept or

Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?
