I get NoClassDefFound for ContextLoaderListener class using Spring and Eclipse IAM Maven plugin

I get NoClassDefFound for ContextLoaderListener class using Spring and Eclipse IAM Maven plugin. A few simple solutions.

My most common headache during my last Spring project was:


java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener

during start of Tomcat.

Every source pointed to problems with spring.jar, so I suspected having some version conflict between my Spring libraries (eg. I used also Spring-WS in an old version). But that wasn’t real cause and I’d wasted a lot of time. The real problem was faulty Eclipse IAM plugin.

Try out some tricks I’ve described in my another article : Problems using Eclipse IAM and Maven

They really may help you.
