I am new to using ServletContextListener.

I implemented one and changed my web.xml and now I am getting an error:
SEVERE: Error listenerStart

I am take out my listener mapping I am able to use tomcat on other pages
but not when the below code is in web.xml

I'm a newbie on this, please send help. This is with the web-app tags.
What am I doing wrong?
