Having problem running web app through STS.
I'm pretty new to java and very new to Spring and STS, so bear with me a bit.
I've been given an existing Maven project and can't seem to get it to run. The error I get is:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Document base /Users/supertom/springsource/tc-server-6.0.20.C/wtpwebapps/spring-mvc does not exist or is not a readable directory
at org.apache.naming.resources.FileDirContext.setDocB ase(FileDirContext.java:142)
at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext.resources Start(StandardContext.java:4048)
Some more details
OS X 10.6.4
# SpringSource Tool Suite
Build Id: 201010241000
# Tomcat (the one that came with STS)
# other configuration
Project Facets: Dynamic Web Module and Java are checked (Details Pane)
Target Runtime: SpringSource tc Server (Runtime) v6.0 (I've unchecked this as well in which case it just asks what runtime to use)
When I initially imported the project (Import -> existing maven projects) I got an NPE. No other info
If I try to add/remove
I verified no other tomcat is running, or any java processes for that matter before starting.
I've actually done some tweaking and got the above error to go away, but now I just don't get anything in the wtpwebapps dir
Nothing in the console about things not starting, etc. I just believe it isn't being copied to the directory.
# Things I've tried:
Updated mvn to 1.6 from 1.5 in my pom.xml
Update Project Configuration as described here: http://forum.springsource.org/showpo...25&postcount=7
build a war and copy it manually to the webapps folder - works
tried developer addition tc server vs general tc server. Same issue
