First Project with Web-Flow
I am trying to build a sample web-flow project based on the one from the book "Expert Spring MVS and Web Flow" but I am getting the following error as my project starts.
2012-07-18 12:45:01,253 [http-8080-1] DEBUG org.springframework.beans.factory.support.DefaultL istableBeanFactory - Ignoring bean class loading failure for bean '/purchase.htm'
org.springframework.beans.factory.CannotLoadBeanCl assException: Cannot find class [org.springframework.webflow.manager.mvc.FlowContro ller] for bean with name '/purchase.htm' defined in ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/spring-servlet.xml]; nested exception is java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.springframework.webflow.manager.mvc.FlowContro ller
does anyone know any easyer example to learn//

Just one question do you have Expert Spring MVC or Pro Spring MVC? Because that matters greatly. As the author of the latter I was looking into this (together with Koen) however we don't have a spring-servlet.xml nor a bean with the name /purchase.htm.
However the error you seem to have indicates that there is a missing dependency for webflow (maybe it doesn't get deployed properly).

Could you answer which book you have... Because that greatly matters, as mentioned in the previous post in our book (the Pro one) there is no spring-servlet.xml nor any purchase.htm named bean.

Ok, that at least lowers my stress level , however you still have the problem. (I now nothing about the samples shipped with Expert Spring MVC as I did Pro Spring MVC the new book).
Make sure that you have added the webflow jar files to the project and that the project is build and deployed correctly.

thanks marten.. As you can see I am the Staten Island Java Group leader.. anyway to get a "NOT FOR RESALE" PDF version

For that you would have to contact the publisher that is out-of-my-hands . Maybe you can trade-in/swap your Expert Spring MVC version for the new one, depending on when you bought it..
