Hello,

I am trying to launch Tomcat 5 and i keep getting this trace at startup:

SEVERE: Error filterStart
06-nov-2004 18:26:43 org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext start

So, the application can�t run

Any idea of what happens?

here is my web.xml, in case it helps:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN" "http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd">
<web-app>
<servlet>
<servlet-name>Controller</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>TestApp.Servlets.Controller</servlet-class>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>Controller</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/Controller</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

<description>MySQL Connection Pool</description>

<res-ref-name>jdbc/UserDB</res-ref-name>
<res-type>javax.sql.DataSource</res-type>
<res-auth>Container</res-auth>
</resource-ref>
</web-app>

Thanks

indicates to me that Tomcat has not gotten past initial startup, possibly your web.xml has not even been looked at.
Did the initial installation of Tomcat work correctly? Have you made any changes to the standard server.xml?
Did you really use upper case letters in the package name TestApp.Servlets?
What is the directory structure for this web application that Controller is supposed to run in?

Hello Bill,

Thanks for the response...

Well, the package structure is lower case, i modified server.xml in order to configure a connection pool to mySQL database.

I have tried the same application in eclipse/tomcat and it worked properly.

Perhaps is some issue with tomcat configuration in IntelliJ IDE...but i am out of ideas, i really want to use that IDE.

Any help? someone configured tomcat in IntelliJ succesfully?

Thanks
