I have simple web aplication, the web-inf/lib directory contains just two *.jar files - struts.jar and log4j-1.2.8.jar.
When I start tomcat after deploying this application I got several times this error(warning) message:

I removed the directory "Meta-inf" and the file "" from *.jar files, but it didn't help.

Please, do You know how to fix this error?

Any answer on this?
I have a similar problem in a Weblogic application, but I have many more jars in the classpath.
I have found many suggestions, but none of them really apply to my situations.

Hope something in here is useful.
I agree. Here's the link:
