I am using Tomcat 5.5, Spring 1.2.7 & IDE is eclipse Helios.

During my startup of my app server (Tomcat), I am facing the error "Document root element "beans", must match DOCTYPE root "null" in eclipse" in my applicationContext-hibernate.xml and thereby my context initializing is failing. Could someone in this forum can help me? The exact message is here below

No way to help without at least the relevant portions of the configuration file.

Why are you using such an old version of Spring?
