Hi All,

I have configured a spring JPA project but when I deploy and start the tomcat I get the exception nin stacktrace as shown below.

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'dataSource' defined in ServletContext resource [/WEB-INF/database-config.xml]: Error setting property values; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.PropertyBatchUpdateException; nested PropertyAccessExceptions (1) are:

I have been trying to get it to work since morning today but have not been able to..
Google doesn't help much either. Does anybody have a clue?

I would appreciate any help.

For some reason your app can't find the aspectjweaver.jar file. Are you sure you have that file in your runtime classpath? If you can find it, open up the JAR file and make sure you have the org/aspectj/lang/Signature file in it.

Edited 4 Years Ago by ~s.o.s~

The aspectjweaver.jar file is in my runtime classpath aspectjweaver-1.6.10

Well the irony is that the same project when I run on my office machine runs just fine. But here at home I get the exception as shown above. Not able to understand what might be the issue. :(
