Could not open ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/spring3Mvc-servlet.xml]

I got this error message today in a new SpringMVC project.

Caused by: java.io.FileNotFoundException: Could not open ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/spring3Mvc-servlet.xml]
 at org.springframework.web.context.support.ServletContextResource.getInputStream(ServletContextResource.java:118)
 at org.springframework.beans.factory.xml.XmlBeanDefinitionReader.loadBeanDefinitions(XmlBeanDefinitionReader.java:328)

To fix this you have to tell the DispatcherServlet where your spring configuration is. This here solved my problem.

<servlet>
    <servlet-name>Spring MVC Dispatcher Servlet</servlet-name>
    <servlet-class>org.springframework.web.servlet.DispatcherServlet</servlet-class>
    <init-param>
        <param-name>contextConfigLocation</param-name>
        <param-value>/WEB-INF/applicationContext.xml</param-value>
    </init-param>
    <load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>

  1. Bonjour,
    Je suis encore débutante en programmation avec spring, et je suis en train de développer une application web basée sur le framework spring avec flex et hibernate (JPA), sur eclipse europa.
    Je rencontre toujours le même problème lorsque je démarre mon serveur Tomcat, même en configurant spring dans le fichier web.xml.
    J’ai déjà passé trop de temps là dessous, sans arriver à résoudre le problème.
    Je vais vous montrer mes fichiers web.xml, applicationCotext.xml, et je vous prie de vouloir me répondre le plus tôt possible. C’est très urgent.

  2. Thanks! This article helped me a lot! I did this way:

    springapp
    org.springframework.web.servlet.DispatcherServlet

    contextConfigLocation
    /WEB-INF/stringapp-servlet.xml

    1

  3. Excellent way of describing, and pleasant post to take facts on the topic of my presentation focus, which i am going to
    present in school.
