Java Question

Error on running tomcat server in Eclipse

I am so new in Java and I have cloned one project from Gitlab and imported it into Eclipse.

I also added tomcat server and also set properties for project as well as for tomcat server.

I have currently 2 projects added in Eclipse and one is working fine but another is failing. I have changed ports for server of another project.

It looks like some files are missing?

I have gone through many answers here but none helped.

But upon running second project, I am getting below errors:

Update: my pom.xml is as below and it does not have provided state

enter image description here

Answer

It seems the Java Common Logging lib is on provided scope in your project.

Either you modify the pom.xml to remove the "provided" scope, or you put the common logging JAR in your tomcat lib directory. I would suggest you to use the first possibility
