Java Question

ServletContextListener SEVERE: Error configuring application listener of class marktest.Config

My Java servlet appears to be complaining that it can't find a file which is included in the package (marktest). Im using Eclipse (Indigo) to develop and Tomcat7.

Here is the error:

SEVERE: Error configuring application listener of class marktest.Config
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: marktest.Config

Here is Config.java which contains the class implementing ServletContextListener which it says it can't find in the error:

package marktest;

import java.util.concurrent.ExecutorService;
import java.util.concurrent.Executors;
import javax.servlet.ServletContextEvent;
import javax.servlet.ServletContextListener;


public class Config implements ServletContextListener
{

private ExecutorService executor;

@Override
public void contextInitialized(ServletContextEvent event)
{
System.out.println("########################## ServletContextListener started ###############################");

}

@Override
public void contextDestroyed(ServletContextEvent event) {
}

}


and here is web.xml

</web-app>


I'm rather stumped even after much Googling. Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer

Looks to me as if your classes weren't properly deployed to Tomcat by WTP (clean/publish again).
